The plot was very predictable and little cliche. The characters were quite well developed, but it's the plot that kind of fell short for me. Few characters were hard to like. About half way through, I just wanted to be finished with the book already and get through it. I thought this book was alright. I think I just don't love the way the author writes. I felt like I wasn't as involved in the character's lives as I am in other books. These are just my opinions, I think others might like it more than I.
