Okay people!Review time! *DRUMROLL*

*Ahem*(clears throat)Okay,NOW I'm good to go.

OH...MY...GOD. o.O
This was so not what I was expecting.This book went waaay beyond my expectations.I bought this book 'cause I got really good responses from my peers about it.And NO,for those who are wondering,I did not request for an ARC from Netgalley.I saw it on the YA book section of kinokuniya and dived straight for it,since it was the last copy they had and I didn't want someone else to get their hands on it.I got weird looks from the employees but at that point,it probably didn't matter.Now if you read a lot of YA novels like Yours Truly,and have read the blurb,I'm sure that you won't be seeing anything special in the book.But let me tell you one thing.THIS BLURB WAS CREATED TO MAKE YOU LOOK DUMB.The same goes with the first eighty-nine pages of the book.From there,it just starts getting awesome-er and awesom-er and leaves you with a "I did not see that comin'" type of ending.Honestly,if it weren't for those first EIGHTY NINE pages then I'd have given this book five stars without blinking.Honestly,for a second there,I felt that I humiliated myself in front of all those people for nothing.But don't back out.If those eighty-nine pages start bothering you,just skim through them until you reach the action-packed part.Believe me,your patience will be totally worth it! XD
