I like the concept of this book - love the idea of strong female characters as leads in a story. Sadly, I am left with a feeling of "meh." Th..Show More »e prose contained some eloquent phrasing sprinkled in with contrived and banal passages. The characters were not believable, no matter how much I wanted them to be. I did not care for the narrator (one of the authors) either - maybe a different narrator would have made a difference? Maybe this book was intended for a teen audience? I can only sum this experience up as a "hot mess." For now, I won't be buying the other books in the series. I may try again though, because I really like the concept (just poor execution, in my opinion).
