My Views:

I heard a lot about this book and nothing but good things. So, obviously i was pretty excited to read the book but just like my previous read I was highly disappointed. Just like Twenty Boy Summer I couldn't get into the book at all. I couldn't relate to the characters and even though the story was interesting it sort of seemed predictable to me. 

The book is tiny, it is only 266 pages but it took me 6 days to finish it. In some parts I really had to push myself to read. Which is not a good thing.

The Good:

  •  Decent plot and interesting premise. 
  •  Some parts of mystery were brilliant.
  • The feel of book was dark and I liked that about it.
  • The friendship and romance aspect of the book was nice and I wished their was more of it.
The Bad:
  • The pacing of the book. It was extremely slow for me. 
  • The ending, especially the epilogue was horrible. 
  • The did not feel anything for any character. 
Overall: 2/5 and a thumbs down.

Writing: 3/5
