Review by

I read this book because I started watching the series on T.V. I like the T.V. series so I thought why not? I'm glad I read it now. I think I like these books as much as or more than Twilight. I didn't go wild over the Twilight series like everyone else did, because I think there are much better books out there for young adults than just this series, but that's just my opinion. Of course, it's hugely different than t.v., more in depth, different places, some different people, even different hair colors of the girls and different attitude of one of the main characters. But, since I watch the series on t.v. I can sort of put voices in where they belong in the book and I like that. If you liked Twilight, I think you'll like this book. It still has a girl that can't live without the boy, but she's not as whiney as Bella.

While Still aimed at Teens-I found the characters more bareable than those from the twilight series.
