There was nothing that made this book worth reading. No danger other than a behind the scenes sort of thing, no excitimg or even imterestimg revelations, no poimt really. Plot? There wasnt one.
It is hard to describe how EMPTY this book was. Empty of personality, importance, emotion, answers. I didnt conmect with any of the characters and when inrealized there would be no ansers or plot twists i wanted to burn the dang book for wastimg my time. It isnt worth reading. Really, there is nothing redeeming that would maake it a good book.
You finish the book feeling cheated, because it started out giving you hope if a worthwhile story. But no, this book is empty empty empty. Dont read it.

My favorite thing about this book is the way information was pre
My favorite thing about this book is the way information was presented. In many books, background information is doled out in generous helpings throughout the book, and the plot has to stop in order for the reader to be caught up to speed. It's like, "Hold on a second. Let me explain, because there's stuff you need to know in order to understand what's about to happen." Even if the story is good, I hate this. I can tell that I'm being informed, and it feels like a brief foray into nonfiction before the story can pick up again. In The Different Girl, this was not the case. I was left to piece together my knowledge of this world as Veronika narrated; this made me pay attention, and I remained engaged throughout the entire story.
My main complaint is the lack of emotion, which I'm sure was intentional, but which didn't give me much reason to feel invested in the characters. This didn't detract from the story very much for me, though, to be honest. I very much enjoyed reading this book. In fact, I'm hoping that there will be a sequel.
