There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It bothered me that Michael (I think that's how you spell it) and Sarah weren't really a thing. Don't you think you could have lengthened it out a tiny bit and at least end it when they kiss?
And, the cliff hanger bothered me. I absolutely hate them. I understand what they are for, but really?! This is almost as bad as Mark of Athena (percy jackson, written by Rick Riordan. The first book is The Lightning Thief. It's amazing, and If yo love Cliffies he is for you) but did you really have to make it that bad of a Cliffie???
Okay, now that I have that off of my chest, let me go to my next point: some things were confusing at first. I'll admit that. But once I caught on, it was amazing. And let me talk about that ending. That ending was nothing close to what I thought would happen. Heck, I didn't even have a clue what I thoughtless happen! I just know that was not what I was expecting. You explained it perfectly.
I want you to know how amazing this was to me: I finished it in a little over a day. And, I ha a play yesterday. And school. I could not stop reading! It was that good! If you are thinking about reading this book, just know it ripped my heart out, and threw it to the ground. And you know it's a good book when that happens. Oh, the FEELS!

I'd recommend this book to people over 12 but if you've already read the first book you should be fine.
Thanks for reading and I hope this was helpful!
