This story started out okay, but I lost interest.
I didn’t really love any of the characters in this book; Rebecca was sweet but naïve, but the rest of them didn’t make me feel anything at all.
The storyline in this dragged a bit for me, and I began to lose interest. I didn’t initially understand the relevance of ‘the PIT’, or why people were really sent there, and I started to not really care either.
There was some romance, but I wasn’t really interested in it.
The ending was okay, but it just didn’t feel like anything had really been solved. Sure they had a plan, but it was half-baked, and I really didn’t see anything major coming from it!
