Young Adult | Paranormal
So much of this book just didn't make sense. Like the characters would always jump to the most illogical solution. Obviously no one ever explained to them that the most direct and obvious is usually true. It was really hard to take them seriously when they were so far off in left field. I never could understand the importance they placed on everything. Why, was the question most on top of my mind. I also had a really hard time seeing Emmy as even remotely grown up. Is it any wonder no one else did when I couldn't even see it. For some reason she really has a very pre-teen sort of way of thinking. The cover definitely does not lead you to think this is some near child. The bad guy is pathetic. He has all these opportunities to kill Emmy and he just keeps hesitating. Maybe he doesn't even want to be himself but wishes someone would stop him and put him out of his misery.
On another note there are a bunch of convoluted sentences as well as plenty of missing words. It was quite distracting and frustrating trying to figure out what the author was trying to say.
The story is fairly average despite all the backwards thinking. The only real redeeming quality is Cyrus. There are some entertaining moments with him. But even he is really odd. Emmy clearly is trying to bite off more romance than she can chew. Trying to get all it is the end of the world that at fifteen he heart has been broken but don't worry I will dedicate myself to you. Like I mentioned earlier she doesn't seem old enough to be bothering with this stuff yet.
