    Needs more research!!

    At first, I was very excited about this book. However, as I read more, I became quite discouraged. There was so very much wrong factually wth this book that could have been so easily researched. The writer had the characters using words such as wow and gameface. A female character was looking forward to working drawing up contracts. They were eating corn. All this fairly close to the beginning of the book. I'm going to try and continue on but honestly, I doubt if I finish it before I delete it. So very disappointing.
