The setting was vividly decribed and allowed the reader to totally immerse themselves into the world of Calixte. The voice of the book gave a very authentic feel to the narration of the story and felt typical to modern teenagers. However, the characters in the book are at times unrealistic and dislikeable. While this may have been deliberate characterisation, it seems as if the characters needed more depth and more relateability. However, this book is a good start for author's first novel.
