3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe coming of age storiea aren't for me?, 28 Aug 2013
This review is from: The Starboard Sea (Paperback)
This book took me quite a long time to read. Not exactly because I didn't want to read it but mainly because initially I found it very difficult to feel anything for Jason, there was a certain impression that he was a bit of a spoilt rich boy. Although there was a sense that something had gone wrong for him it took too long to find out what it was. Once there was something there to feel emphatic about it became more easy to connect with Jason.

Once I felt I knew Jason a bit more my enjoyment increased, especially as he got to know Aidan too, I think she bought out the best in him. And Jason did redeem himself somewhat towards the end.

However it wasn't until close to the end that I really found I cared about the story.

It wasn't the best coming of age story. A bit difficult to relate to, I think. Or maybe I'm just to old to relate to teenagers in that way now?
