The writing is some of the worst that i have come across. Lots of cliche charachters and scenes. Too much focus on the adult relationships. Way too many characters for such a short book. I'm not sure why I finished it.

This was OK. I was looking forward to this book, but I had a tough time with it. It reads like a PHd Thesis. Maybe I'm just not smart enough for this book. Some interesting points but I found myself just trying to get through it.
