I was reading on GoodReads how,
This book would have gotten 5 stars but two things in this book really irked me: (1) the multipple uses gd’s (see ‘swearing’ above) and (2) no quotation marks!! I personally find the gd’s offensive. Now, surprisingly, the lack of quotation marks didn’t make it that hard to read, but I did find myself having to read back to see who exactly was talking. So it was a little annoying. Oh! And for goodness sakes, did the author have to name a main character Jack?!?!? I kept picturing Jack Sparrow every time him and
Saba were talking.
she’s so awesome. I love it when a book doesn’t go exactly the way the reader
has it planned and the main character has to make a tough decision. It just
gives me goose bumps and makes me want to read more! And I never thought I
would say this but, where Katniss is kick-butt and defiant, Saba
is more so. I love a kick-butt character with a sentimental streak. I cannot
wait to get the second book in the series.
