Freaking fantastic! That's what I thought as I turned every page of this book. The characters were so alive and the storyline was sweet yet dark at the right places. I loved Barbie. What a strong young woman she turned out to be. And, yes, Dylan acted like a total idiot sometimes, but he was still pretty endearing. Third was brilliant as a secondary character, probably one of the best sidekicks I've read about in a long time. I loved this book so much! Book two has been bought and will be eargerly devoured shortly.
