So this book wasn’t for me.
Mostly because I requested it because of the cover (idiot). And it is quite the cover. but I had many problems with this book.
the short: this book was confusing, had too many main characters, wayyyy too dramatic, and had more than one love triangle JUST KILL ME ALREADY AND KILL THE LOVE TRIANGLES TOO.
THERE WILL BE SPOILERS BELOW SO I MAY DISCUSS MY PROBLEMS WITH THIS BOOK
so it reminds me of books like Pretty Little Liars and such. It actually has a really cool, interesting prologue, but then it jumps into the POV of one of the main characters, Avery. She’s in love with her brother (granted it’s an adopted relationship but still…. ewww). And guess what. SO IS HER BEST FRIEND. and oh yes, before her brother skipped off to see the world, he hooked up with Avery’s friend(who is in love with him).
another main character is also in love with the same guy as another main character as well. SERIOUSLY STOP IT WITH THE LOVE TRIANGLES.
the romances? too complicated.
also whyyyyy. there were like five main characters. They all had a chapter in a row over and over again and quite frankly I was confused. This whole book could have been stopped from existence if someone had just offered to give these teens therapy. I WILL PAY FOR IT.
I know this is where I need to compliment something but I’m just kind of mad that I wasted my time with this book. meh.
