review 1: I liked the story, but the writing style frustrated me. The author is clearly from the school of "Show, Don't Tell," and I get that this is an important aspect of creative writing. But give it a rest! I would often begin reading a sentence, get lost somewhere in the mess of overly-detailed descriptions and side clauses, and completely forget what the sentence was about by the time I reached the period. I also got a little bit of a snobby feel from the writing - like the author was almost showing off how much she knows about certain things or how amazing her vocabulary is. I don't mind learning from a book, but it seemed constant to me. Still, the story itself was good, and I found I was rooting for the characters all the way through.
review 2: I enjoy Marisa de
... more los Santos' writing and this book was no exception. She has a flair for description that is just enough without overwhelming the reader. The characters in this story are believable (which is a big thing for me) and I felt like I wanted to be best friends with all of them. The underlying plot kept the book moving at a good pace and allowed the characters to fully develop on their own as well as together. The ending for 2 of the 3 characters was somewhat predictable, but not in an eye-rolling way which proves the talent of the author. Highly recommend. less
