After reading the back cover and checking out some reviews, I was intrigued. The story had so much potential, could have been fantastic, but unfortunately fell incredibly flat, feeling one-dimensional and ultimately shallow. I tried, kept putting it down and walking away for months, only to pick it up again because the story in my head was better than the one on the pages. I've finally given up and tossed this one in the stack to sell to the used bookstore. Couldn't even get through it to the end.
