I checked this book out of the library, curious about what sort of book Hilary Duff would write. I thought the first chapter was pretty bad, and questioned whether I actually wanted to continue with the book. But I kept going, and got sucked in to the various mysteries, and finished the book in two days.

The book is very plot-driven - I didn't relate to or really care that much about any of the characters - but the plot is interesting and compelling enough to keep you reading. I completely hated the ending, mostly because it did not resolve anything, but I hear that is because there will be a sequel. I enjoyed the book enough that I would check out the next one from the library, but not enough to buy it. But all in all, the book was definitely better than I was expecting.
