My schedule is packed full of academic reading obligations, so I don't normally get to read for pleasure. I purchased this book thinking I would read snippets here and there when I could find time, and it would take me MONTHS to finish. Well, that plan got screwed. I finished the book in less than a week, willingly giving up precious sleeping time to get further into the story and find out what was going to happen next to these addicting characters Ms. Fleener has created. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
