Review by Lissa
I'm not sure how I feel about this story. I didn't love it and didn't really enjoy it. It was good but for some reason made me uncomfortable.
Sky is a seventeen year old but not your average teenager. She doesn't have all the technology one would have but that's because her mom doesn't believe it. She has her best friend Six whose pretty hilarious. She hasn't really had a connection to any of the boys in her life. Except when Holder comes a long.
Now, this novel turned into a direction I didn't expect. The author usually has a twist of some kind, a little mystery. It's not at all that I expected. This is the first one I read of hers I didn't really love.
