Review by

I'm not sure what this book's trying to be. It starts off well: the writing style is fine, and it sets itself up for a strong and enjoyable story. About a third of the way through, however, it seems to lose track of itself; the plot starts to jump about to the point where I don't think the author really knew what he wanted to happen, the tone changes far too much and after a while it just gets weird. It manages to reign itself in eventually and tie itself together in a somewhat satisfying ending, but after reading it I was left pretty emotionless. Nevertheless, I'll give it three stars for the start, and I imagine it's engaging enough to keep the goffick youngsters entertained, but ultimately it's stuck in an odd place between fluffy teen fantasy and being dark enough to make an impact.
