Story: I enjoyed the book very much. I felt like I was really invested in it from the very beginning. I did think that there were parts that were glossed over. It also kind of left me with a very unfinished feeling. I’d be okay with a sequel. I know that it’s referenced things that happened after that point, but only to an extent. I just kind of felt like I was left with more questions than answers when it was all said and done.
Characters: This is one of the books where I just didn’t care for the main character at all. I didn’t dislike him though. I just wanted to shake some sense into him. I mean I get it. He’s young. He was just all over the place though.
Critiques: There are many things that are referenced in this book that I would have liked to see more elaboration on. I don’t want to say too much because some of them are at the end of the book and I don’t want to give spoilers. I do feel like this story begs for either a sequel or an epilogue. Something to tie the loose ends together and explain what happened to certain characters better as well.
Final Thoughts: I really did enjoy this book very much. I can’t say I was in love with it or that it was one of my favorites. I had a wonderful time reading it though. If it weren’t for the parts that I felt like should have been elaborated on more, I would actually love this book and probably make it a reread. As it were, I’d still recommend this book. I love how raw and realistic it is.
