This is possibly one of *the* worst books I have ever read. Great premise - terrible storyline and execution. Not only is the writing marginal, but the author re-uses the same hokey imagery over and over "quicksilver child", "thin hair, held back with barettes". There is little redeeming about the characters, and the subplots are simply unbelievable. Don't waste a credit or your time on this one. If I were the publisher, I'd be embarrassed.

Sorry. This one was a disappointment. I quickly tired of characters who made bad decisions and then proceeded to compound the mistakes.

Adequate. I don't think I would have finished this book if I didn't have the audio version. As it was, I'm not convinced it wasn't a waste of time. Lots of potential in the story, but I feel like the author just didn't try hard enough.

I listened to the story rather than reading it, and I didn't read the reviews before I listened to it. I am surprised by the negative reviews the book got because I thought the story was a decent "chick lit". I didn't even realize that I was listening to an abridged version of the story because the box contained 9 CDs. Maybe the book was too long for some people.
