I have to say I really enjoyed this book. I stumbled across it randomly and thought it sounded intriguing so I picked up a copy. Well I intriguing it was. Was it predictable? Absolutely. But there was some comfort in the predictability of it. There was still enough mystery to keep it going while the other parts I could see coming a mile away. It led to a balance of sorts that just worked.
Honestly Vee made the book for me. She was just plain likable. She had this secret that she was hiding from everyone which made her have to hide a part of herself. On top of that she had to be the rock in the family for her sister and almost parental for her too. She was only 17 and had more on her plate then any teen should. Add in the fact that things were awkward with her and her best friend Rollins and the new guy Zane it is a miracle that Vee didn't crack under the pressure. Actually I think that is what I liked most about her. She just stayed strong and kept going. She did what she had to to keep everyone moving all while figuring out what secrets everyone was hiding.
The story was really well told and kept me interested even after I figured out just what the heck was happening. I'm excited this isn't a stand alone, which I don't say too often. I can't wait to find out what else is in store for Vee and her slides.
