This was a great story with intriguing characters and an interesting plot line. I was drawn in from the beginning, but definitely hooked by the end. It's a read that will have you thinking about it long after you've finished it. Highly waiting for a sequel.
This story was very enjoyable, although slow at times. I had wished there would be slightly more action as the story seemed to be mostly about Willow's walk through her school day and lots of sleeping. I also didn't quite understand her anger toward her mother over a new boyfriend. I would've understood had it been a short time after her father's death but it had been 5 years and her mother was clearly sad. I would think Willow would like seeing her mother happy again. But perhaps that's just me. I also was slightly frustrated at her choices. If she got in trouble while hanging with Tessa then why would she go with her again?
Having said that, however, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and Michael was adorable. Good job Julie Knudsen.
This was a great second book!! I just love Nate. He is such an honorable guy. I got slightly annoyed at Megan for the way she treated Nate at one point, but in the end it all pulled together nicely. I also enjoyed the side characters, Joe, Lauren, and Adrian. Good job Christina!
