    Having read The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade, I already knew that I loved her writing. What I didn't know was how much I would love The Rules. I closed the cover to The Rules thinking, this book has everything it needed to have plus more. I thought to myself that some authors just "have it," meaning their talent seems to come naturally and easily. There are just some books that stand out and this was one of them.

    I loved so much about this book. The plot was unique and very well-executed. I loved the fact that while Ariane is paranormal, she's a different kind of paranormal. I don't read too much about extraterrestrials and I really enjoyed the change of pace. Speaking of pace, Kade's pacing in The Rules was perfect. Things moved along fast enough to keep me flipping the pages excitedly, but not so fast that the plot felt rushed. The world-building was interspersed with the story, which I love because there are no slow patches to the book. I loved Ariane's history and thought that Kade did a very thorough job with Ariane's back-story.

    One of my favorite styles of writing is when authors use an alternating POV. I love getting to really know both main characters, and alternating POVs really get the reader inside the characters' heads. I love that! I found the characters to be quite complex, more so than in other YA reads, and I really enjoyed that. It kept the book from feeling too young---because much of the story was set in high school, with typical high school drama. That "high school feeling" was the only thing I didn't love about The Rules. It is a necessary evil of YA, but I prefer it when the focus is not so much on school.

    The ending was a nice surprise, and I really can't wait to read book two. Kade has done an outstanding job with book one in the Project Paper Doll series!
