  • Did this book hold your attention?  No
  • Was the story what you expected? Were you disappointed? Surprised? The story was not what I had expected at the beginning but after a while I expected certain things to happen. I did not really like the ending of the book either; I feel like it wasn’t written as well as other books and it felt rushed to me.
  • Do you think that the book was suitable for your age? Too violent, swearing, sex, etc.: I think the book was suitable for my age.  There was mild swearing and there was mild sexual content.
  • Did you like/dislike the book? Why? I did not really enjoy the book I felt uncomfortable with having to read about some young girl’s uncle raping her.
  • Who would you recommend this book to, even if you disliked it? Give an example.: I would recommend this book to people who enjoy mystery, mild swearing, and don’t mind the idea of people getting raped.
  • Is this a stand-alone book, or is it part of a series? This book stands alone there are no series adding on to the book.
  • Does the cover art match the style of the book inside? I don’t think the cover matched the book because on the cover there is many numbers in random places and the book had nothing to do with numbers what so ever.
