I read this book because my friends adored it and Incarceron, but I just didn't get it. The shifting perspectives were irritating and somewhat confusing. The climax wasn't action-packed or exciting. I wouldn't recommend it.
My family often has issues finding movies that we want to watch together because my 10-yr-old sister isn't allowed to watch PG-13 movies and my other 14-yr-old sister and I normally find her picks to be boring. Our entire family managed to watch and enjoy this film. It's not perfect - the debt-collector ladies terrified me and other parts of the story were weak or just not believable - but overall it was adorable, nostalgic and entertaining. It wasn't quite as good as the original, but it was definitely worth the watch.
I read the prequel to this book (The Goddess Test), and while I didn't really enjoy it, I actually disliked this book. I tried to read it, but got disgusted by Kate and the plot. I couldn't even finish it.
Meg Cabot's Heather Wells mysteries are divine. The mysteries are set up well - there is suspense, and the criminal isn't obvious. There's a healthy dose of chick lit mixed in. Enjoy!
I am sort of in love with this series. Heather Wells's mysteries are entertaining, unpredictable, and charming.
In this installment, Heather's temporary boss Owen, is shot through the head. Heather has to find who really did it, clear Sarah's crush Sebastian's name, and figure out if she's really happy with her new boyfriend Tod.
