Did we miss something on diversity?

Community Reviews

age 15+

It was alright, slightly boring.

Even though the character of Dakota has quite sexual thoughts and actions, the characters are good for a mid-teen to adult audience. I wouldn't recommend it for people under 15. My friend recommended this to me saying "Its the best book I've ever read!" No. I disagree, if it wasn't for the characters of Dakota and Skye, I would've stopped reading it. Jena and Owen are much to whiney and inncent for my tastes. And the book didn't keep me wanting more. I would stop reading it for a day or two without caring. Generally it was a good book, but I could've gone my whole life without and I'd be okay with that.
