Review by

Well, the description on the back was far more intriguing than the actual story inside. I was left pretty unimpressed by the story and the characters. It was not awful and it was easy to read and a nice original idea but it was missing the kind of spark that takes a book from 'okay' to 'compelling' for me. It mostly just lacked any sort of focused. The story just felt very jumpy and bitty to me. It was also packed full of YA clichés such as the-new-interesting-girl-moving-to-the-tiny-high school but it was easy enough to ignore those. I'm not completely turned off the series and will definitely have a read of the second book as I think the story definitely has potential, especially now that it's (hopefully) moving away from the mundane descriptions of every action taking place inside the school.
