(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
After having read this book accidentally earlier, I re-read it today and found myself enjoying it just as much the second time round.
I did like seeing the relationship between Alex and Halle. Even though they were very young, I still thought they had some really sweet moments during this book. There was quite a bit of action going on here, but it was still good to be able to see the characters interacting with each other.
This book was really easy to read. It was short, but I felt it was well-written. Halle did irritate me a little during this… I thought that she was putting herself in unnecessary danger. I did enjoy reading about the friendship she formed with Wyatt, though. I found myself quite liking Wyatt as a character, despite what his first appearance seemed to suggest.
Although there was quite a bit of tension in this book, there wasn’t much mystery. It was clear from the start who the bad guys were… but I did think the author did a good job of showing how Halle put everything together to come to that conclusion.
I liked seeing Halle and Blakeley interacting and I would have liked to see more of them having a nice, sisterly relationship. I also would have liked to see more of Izzy and Alex and their relationship. There were times it felt like Halle was more upset about Alex than Izzy was… though I suppose Izzy was caught up in the new relationship she was in.
There weren’t too many minor characters in this book, which was good in a way, since a lot of characters can be confusing. However, apart from Missy, there didn’t seem to be a lot of other students around. I would have liked to see some more everyday interactions with other students at the school.
I liked seeing the use of text messages, since I felt it worked with the characters. I really didn’t like Mr. Davies, I have to say… even if there was some reference to him actually being a good man.
This book was really quick and easy to read. At some point in the future, I’d like to read Hush. And it would also be good to see more books in this series.
