Very, Very Luring

By far I really like Claire Farrell's work, but this one is very luring. Most of the time you want to go into the book and slap some of the characters- trust me that is a good thing. There is so much emotion that goes into it that it gets me worked up and ready. I have ...

There is so much emotion that goes into it that it gets me worked up and ready. I have to remind myself it is just a book!

Perdita lives her life at the bottom of the social ladder, but she doesnt really mind because she actually has great company from her best friend and cousin. They all face bullying daily from the resident mean girl Dawn, but they tend to take it in stride.


Having had strange dreams of a boy with brown eyes that draw her in for some time now, she is shocked to see a new kid at school with those same eyes. Can it be the same guy as her dreams?


Soon Perdy makes friends with Amelia, the new guys younger sister. She finds herself standing up for herself and others. If only she could figure out what the deal is with Nathan? Sometimes she feels like their relationship goes deeper, but other times its as if they dont even know each other.


This story does not lack in drama, not only does Perdy have to deal with the jealousies of Dawn, but somehow life really gets turned upside down when her own best friend seems to turn against her.


I was quite frustrated with Nathan for most of this book. I understand his motives, but it didn't seem believable enough for some reason.


I also felt the ending of this book was a little forced. I understand that there was a climax, but I really didn't feel there was any type of resolution.


Overall it was a nice storyline and the writing was well executed. Characters were all well developed as well.

    So so but a good werewolf book

    Verity is a great supernatural book about werewolves. The main character made me mad a lot and does some stupid things but other than that and how the werewolves never wanted to fight it was good. The book is like a werewolf version of twlight

    ....

    I like the plot and if i didnt have this insane thing where i have to finish and a book to see what happens i would stop reading. The writing is just horrible. I will finish this book in hopes the author gets better.
