This is a very difficult book to review.  I went into this book the same as I did with We Were Liars, knowing nothing.  Honestly, I didn't relate or like either of the main characters - Imogen or Jule.  I read and loved We Were Liars earlier this year and had very high expectations for this one.  I found the plot confusing (the way is backtracks) and there's too many characters in the mix.

Maybe it was my mistake in presumption but I had thought that this book would have a point to the plot, a bit of suspense and maybe a few twists and turns but, for me, this had none of those things.

Unfortunately this book was not for me but have given it 2 stars because it intrigued me enough to want to finish reading the book.
