A first novel by this author, it's a good start but there is definitely room for improvement. A good storyline but far too many characters - and all aged between 18 and 24 years old. This makes this book far more suitable for late teens to early twenties aged readers than for an older generation. Amazon recommended this book as a suitable alternative to Cathy Reich books, but this is nothing like as sophisticated or well written as those. There were too many 'loose ends' at the end of the book.
