cons: there are few grammar mistakes that made me falter and re read the sentence before ignoring editorial mistakes. Sometimes the story seemed patched to make two or more interesting part connect. Some character development was hastened it seemed.
pros: This is one exciting read for any young adult. It got all the elements to turn into a movie. The story keeps twisting and surprising the reader till the last page. It never gets boring. Time worth spent." - Himika Rashid
