This is more an example of my personal tastes than anything else, but after reading the first book and seeing the main character treated with such hatred, it was difficult to continue with the second.

One of the problems I noted was that there didn't seem to be much continuation from the first with Amanda's story. She was supposedly cleared of guilt in the murder of a classmate when it came to light that she was acting in self defense, but most people still treat her as a murderer and something to be feared. It wasn't as prevalent, but it made it feel like the first book didn't really matter.

I did find the moments between father and daughter were nice. But for all the emphasis on catching the real rapist, it felt like it was a subplot spinning it's wheels in the background instead of actually going anywhere.

It may improve on reread when I'm in a different mood, but for now I had to DNF halfway through.
