I think this may be the only book I have ever read that when I finished I threw aside and thought to myself, "What a waste of time." Nothing hardly ever happens in this book, and when it did I had no idea what happened. The plot strays and you think something else is happening then nothing ever comes of it. Very obviously this authors 1st book.
