    Full of surprises...

    I agree with the other two reviewers that 'Heaven can be so stupid.' Yes, she can. And I understand why, but still, sometimes I think she needs a good slap in the face and then everything would be fine again. She was definitely too hard on Hiro, that was simply ridiculous of her. He can't help what his father gets up to any more than she can. I thought the betrayal of Chryll (however you spell her name) was well-written, but it pretty much made me think: 'Not ANOTHER person turning on Heaven - come on!' It happens so frequently. I think that's why she agrees to return to Japan - she probably knows she's walking into a trap, but feels there's nothing else to do. Her uncle gives me the creeps!

    Not as good as the others, but still great!

    All the books are fast paced, but this one was the most so. I loved it, of course, but the idea that Heaven completely changes her feelings about Hiro over one thing that he can't control makes her seem flighty and immature to me. She can't help the way her family is - why should things be any different for him with his family. It seemed like she jumped to conclusions. Cheryl's character suddenly seemed so unrealistic to me. I didn't like what happened with her. I did love the police set up! Fun! All in all, a great book - but a little sluggish compared to the others.

    ThIs BoOk WaS AwSoMe!!!!!!!!

    I really liked this book it didn't even take me a full day to read it but Heaven can be so stupid at times. I mean come on in the second to last book when Heaven got into a fight With Marcus he tells her Meiko wanted to say hello. So i want to know why she agrees to go back to Japan with meiko's brother who obviously must feel the same way as Meiko. Well I'm not gonna say anymore I'll let you guyz read the book enjoy!!!!!!!!!
