Kathleen Hayson thinks her biggest problem is her mother. The only runner up—her mouth. With a wit sharper than her mother's perfectly manicured nails, her clever remarks create more problems than they solve.
But it's not her clever remarks landing her knee-deep in trouble. This time, Josh Colby is to blame. Kathleen's former childhood friend has become the school's most stuck up jerk. Before, she'd have told him to piss off and write his own stupid letter to the town slut/minister's daughter. Now Kathleen's escalating problems at home force her to reevaluate how flexible her principles are. She agrees to write the controversial letter Josh has requested.
Enter Rigel, a smartass magical creature who invades her room one night, promising he has come to help. When a boy Kathleen hates turns up dead and her mother goes missing, the letter becomes a key piece of police evidence—implicating Kathleen. As she fights her way out of a web of lies, the trust she has in those closest to her shatters. In the end, she's pushed to a terrible choice: who lives, and who else dies.
Here we have a story about young girl Kathleen. She has a bad relationship with her mother. Her mother tries to peruade her to lose some weight and Kathleen believes that she is ashamed of her. Her best friend Aka as well as other friends are “freaks“ or at least that's how other students call them. But things change when one “popular“ guy from the school ask her to do him a favour. In the meantime strange things happen, suddenly Rigel pops up in her life. Kathleen must deal with a lot of crazines at the time.
This story is different. First thing I noticed and liked was main character Kathleen. Not because I like her as a character but because author did great job with her personality. She is that dark/gothic girl who pretends that doesn’t care about others and their opinion but deep inside she is really woundable. I had clear picture of her and I’ll say it again, really good job is done there. Unfortunately I can’t say the same for the rest of the story. I just couldn’t feel it. It was bunch of words in front of my eyes that made story but no feelings.
This story is also strange maybe even weird. All that story about Rigel is really surprising for me, but well I don’t read blurbs so I guess it won’t be surprising for others. One more thing is that this book is not predictable. I was really astonished with some moments, some were good but unfrtunately some were bad.
All in all really short and interesting book, but not more than that.
Until the next time,
