I loved Piper/Greta as a character. She’s strong and isn’t afraid to stand up for herself. She’s clever too. I couldn’t believe how long she was able to evade the police when she was on the run. I devoured this book! The drama was intense and the characters were interesting and complex. Her bio mom was absolutely horrible and so was her older sister. They were awful to Piper. Her bio dad was incredible and was one of the best parts of this story.
The romance could have been a bit better. I didn’t feel that strong of a connection between Finn and Piper. It almost felt like they were going through the motions. I was more interested in the drama going on with her family. That was what kept me turning the pages. When the story focused on her relationship with Finn, it felt like the pacing slowed way down. I just didn’t care as much about their relationship. I wanted more of the kidnapping drama.
DON’T CALL ME GRETA is a fast-paced story of a girl whose life gets turned upside down. Her tale is unforgettable and will stay with the reader for a long time. I highly recommend it for anyone who loves to read suspenseful stories for teens.
