My Rating: 3 Stars
In this fast-paced adventure set in Mexico, teen celebrity Vivian Divine goes on the run after receiving a death threat, and discovers that everything she thought she knew about her charmed life—and the boy she loves—is a lie.
This isn't one of those books that you go into expecting an in depth look into the characters or a heart felt read or anything even truly mind blowing, instead it gives you exactly what most books should, an escape from reality for however long it takes you to finish it.
This is a hard book to review. The writing was fabulous in some aspects and lacked in others. The plot was wild and out there but still maintained some originality which, lets face it, is becoming harder and harder to find in the world of YA. Yet where it excelled in originality is failed in reality.
At times this seemed so far out there that it was completely unbelievable and I felt like rolling my eyes and yet, it still kept me turning the pages because I couldn't help but be fascinated as each new twist took on an even wilder and crazier one than the last.
Overall I would say this was a crazy ride that while laughable was still very much hard to put down.
