Three stars, because I liked it, but that’s all. It was interesting, but about 1/3 of the way through I found that I wanted to start skimming certain sections of the story. One part had me thoroughly interested, and the rest… not so much.
I think that a teen reader might enjoy this story more than I did, it’s hard to say. I did like it enough to want to read the next book to see what happened, so maybe that is good enough. I wanted to be entertained, and I was.
