There were moments of this book that really impressed the heck out of me. Great title for those looking to bridge from YA to more contemporary literary fiction.

Meh. I came for a good entry into my #summeroftruecrime list; instead, I got a snooty-snoot-snoot recap of the school‘s who‘s-who and trial. The legal ramifications of this case proved very interesting, but that came out in the Epilogue. Too little, too late. Sigh.

Brutus is taking a nap while I try out this book this evening. Anyone else read this one? Not my typical jam, but rising/dueling fantasy queens seems to be one of the YA publishing trends I need to get on board with for recommendations for teens this fall.

I was not expecting to lose interest so fast in this title, but I couldn‘t connect with the characters and didn‘t feel they were well-developed, which is what I love about her other books. Disappointed.

Meh. I was hoping to get my #summeroftruecrime off to a great start after seeing this in the NYT Book Review summer picks section, but feel that for the most part, this is way overdone on the writing to the point where I‘m reading some guy‘s senior writing thesis, and not at all interested in the real crime or the people surrounding it.
