the book was good it just seemed to that the author was trying to hard to write a book and got lost in why she was writing it. it just seemed as if one minute things in the book were good even when things are going bad the author was unsure of how to write and just had no way of writing and lost it. one minute the book was interesting the voice flow the next minute nothing it just founder too much. so idea just the wrong way to go about telling what could have been a better story. it just felt lost to me.
