I thought the book was okay. I felt like it was missing something (e.g. the story about the friend that died - the whole point of their contention). Maybe it was explained in a previous book. Either way, I wish authors/publishers etc. would state clearly before buying if the book is a continuation of a series. Ugh! Its frustrating when you're reading a book and you feel like they (author/editor) have left parts of the story out (for whatever reason).
I'd like to know why, where, who and how come in a summary fashion (LOL). Overall, it had a great story line even with the missing pieces and unanswered questions (his father, his mother, the friend that died) therefore, it gets an "It's Okay" rating.
