This book was a fast and enjoyable read. The tone of the book- haunting and intriguing- fit the conflict of the story perfectly. The constant switch from before and after the death was interesting, but at times became a bit annoying because I often got confused about which was present and which was past. I thought the characters were developed nicely, and it was easy to connect to Cass. Overall, this book was a very interesting and fast paced and I would recommend to anybody age 10 and up.
I would rate this a 4-4.5 out 5 stars.
