Overall, this one was just okay for me.

Although there was a bit of episodic choppiness, some lack of completion or depth to the world-building, and an ending I wished had been a bit more of a real finale rather than a quieter conclusion.

The plot was compelling, it had a great fantasy wild west setting, I liked the examination of oppressive systems of gender, class, and wealth, and I was rooting for the characters the whole way.

However, I also understand two things: this is a young adult read and it also has a fantasy element. Perhaps this will be more appealing to a teenage crowd and honestly, I am not one who really enjoys fantasy (with the exception of a few: i.e. Game of Thrones), lik e seriously, i couldn't even get into Harry Potter. Woops.
