My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This book was fine, but just not my favorite. (view spoiler)[The way it ended was just too much of an annoying cliff hanger for me. (hide spoiler)]
The characters were somewhat interesting, with the female characters piquing my interest more than the others, though toward the end when we got a bit more backstory on some of the characters I was interested.
This book felt like a CW show, if you know what I mean--sort of teen-soap-opera-y. The plot wasn't that well developed, and there wasn't enough character development--it all happened in flashbacks, which felt like a cop out. None of the characters had real arcs-they didn't change that much (if at all) through the plot, so it felt short and like it just covered the surface area, to me.
It might be a good beach/vacation book for teens on spring break, but for me it was lacking. I love a good YA book, but this just wasn't deep or developed enough for me. I want some meat in my stories. It felt like it was written for teens, rather than being a great book that was well written that would appeal to teens, if that makes sense. I won't pick up the rest of the series.
