I was a bit conflicted with this book. I was really looking forward to reading this after I learned I'd won an ARC from Bookish First. I have to admit that it left me a bit disappointed. Early on, I found the book trite and the characters very flat. There was no build up of tension or drama - it was choppy and stilted and jumped around all over the place, leaving me to catch up constantly. The dialogue drove me insane - I kept thinking "what teenagers speak this way?!" So early on I was hugely disappointed. As the book progressed, I was glad I stuck with it. It did get better and I did get more invested in Sparrow's story. All in all, it wasn't a terrible read but I think there was some room for improvement.
