This book started off great. I rarely read novels like this. I tend to stick to the fantasy or science fiction genres. YA contemporary isn't normally a genre I pick up. However, this book started off with a bang. Despite her gritty personality and aggressiveness, I actually really liked Autumn's character in the beginning. She was obviously facing deep-seated issues and was keeping secrets. I was really invested in her when the book started. I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out who attacked her and held her captive. However, as the book continued, I began to lose interest. I realize that Autumn's sister had the difficult task of trying to figure out where her sister disappeared, but I felt like her actions and thought process were oftentimes silly and shallow. I definitely wasn't invested in her whatsoever, and I cared less and less about where the story was going.

Overall, it wasn't a terrible book, but it lost momentum somewhere in the middle and never seemed to find it again.
