This book has gone to the top of the pile in one of the most intriguing young adult novels I have read to date. It is very long, almost 400 pages, but the book automatically puts the reader into a high intensity situation which has you hooked from the very beginning. The story line is pretty generic, star crossed lovers not being able to be together, but the situations they are put into by themselves are very interesting. The ending/part four of the book got very slow and boring however. This book is good for ninth grade and up.
