Amber Black, June 2, 2013 (view all comments by Amber Black)
This was just a bunch of nothing. Nothing really innovative, no interesting characters, nothing that caught my curiosity. The only saving grace (and what earned this 2 stars rather than 1) was that it was relatively well-written, rather than being full of lurid, purple prose like so many YA novels. That doesn't excuse the lackluster plot though. I don't even care enough about these characters to read/listen to the sequel, which I often do even if I hate the first book in a series.

As far as the "romance" which is evidently a necessity in YA books these days, it was completely unbelievable and since that's 3/4 of the book.... I'm tired of these stupid teen-oriented books where people fall in love after three days. I especially hate the trope where they love each other soooooo much after a month that they'll move heaven and earth to be together. I don't know any teenagers like that. Teens who question authority? Sure. Teens who see daydream about finding their one true love? Of course! Teens who fall head over heels on first sight? Yeah. But this is not that scenario and there was nothing in their conversations prior to declarations of love that made me go "Oh yeah, they're made for each other."

Overall a big yawn and again happy I didn't waste precious reading time on this and just listened to the audiobook. As far as that goes, they made some very weird editing choices regarding background music, but it's not bad. Definitely not as offensive as some YA audiobooks.
