Started out interesting

Well, this book SEEMED interesting enough, and it was. It really was. But, as the more I read the more it just seemed to go on and on and I just started to loose interest in the story. While it started off grabbing my attention, near the end of the...

No. Just no.

Nice action, honestly. Funny, the only thing I really liked was one small quote Pierce's mama said. "'Oh no,' Mom said with a semi-hysterical laugh. 'That was just Pierce's boyfriend. He set the carpet on fire with his brain.'" Just FYI Meg, you...

That was painful

1.5 stars. It was okay, but I will never pick up this book to read it again. While the story was pretty good, the writing was down right horrible. At one point she's talking about one thing then BAM it turns into something else and...

Epic

Astounding! Such a amazing story. This book is so engaging and enthralling! It really grabs you and keeps you wanting more! The attention to detail is on target, not to mention the characters. I don't even know what to say there. They are captivating. The stereotypes they "fit...

Disappointed.

I honestly wasn't expecting a book 2. Book one ended so well, I was caught off guard by book two. But that didn't stop me from finishing it quickly. I was expecting more from this book. It seemed dodgy and seemed to drag by at...

Where to even begin? This story is about a bold and bright girl just trying to make it through school in one piece. When it boils down to it, it's a story of a teenage girl who's life is more or less, great. When I...

Surprising

Wow, um. Okay. This book surprised the heck out of me! It was a slow start and painful. Through most of the book I just wanted someone to slap the fire out of the mother and oldest daughter. I know teens go through this "oh my gosh, you are ruining...

Captivating. Heartfelt. Heart warming...and most of all, REAL.

Captivating. Heartfelt. Heart warming...and most of all, REAL. And also a bit scary. But not scary in the way you think. It's scary because it's so real. That is so true. Honestly, I've had this book for a long time now. I actually got it a few...
