I really wanted to LOVE this book. When I saw it in Walmart and read the back, I was so excited for such a unique concept. However, it did not live up to my expectations. The POV of the boys was weak and less interesting than the main character (not sure why it was even included, honestly). The story dragged quite a bit, with no real “action” until Chapter 20. It was going to get a lower grade, but after Chapter 20 it really did get a hell of a lot better, so it got bumped up. The author and the storyline has potential, but I don’t think it was executed as well as it could have been. I gave it a chance and finished the book, but not everyone is as happy to do that, so I worry that readers aren’t getting to the “good stuff”. I loved Viv and her gift, and I never saw the result coming- could not predict the killer, and I love that, because it seems mystery books are easy to predict lately. I sort of wish the story hadn’t gone to the academy, but rather stayed at Viv’s home. I much more enjoyed her chemistry with her mother, brother, friends, and horse, Dean. All of that being said, if the author continues the series, I will probably check it out, because I’m curious about Vivvie and her journey through life.Was this review helpful?
