Review: When I first started reading this book I didn't have very high hopes. I found some parts to be pretty predictable in the beginning. I thought Daniel's big secret was kind of obvious but it played out well enough. However, there were a few plot twists that took me by surprise and made the story that much more interesting. I did like the fact that Grace and Daniel were childhood friends instead of meeting accidentally wjile she is all alone at a new school. I was really annoyed by the way it ended. It seems like it made everything else that the characters had worked for obsolete and pointless. I wish the story had taken a different direction. It would have made the characters journey more worth it. I thought the characters seemed average. Grace, Daniel and Jude were nothing special. I thought a lot of their personality traits were pretty stereotypical. I liked them all but they aren't characters I really loved. I am interested to see where the sequel goes even though it kind of seems like I know already. Overall, i did like this book and have higher hopes for the rest of the series.
