Mead just jumps right in to the story. On our first read through (until about 100 pages in), we misunderstood the bond between Rose and Lissa and thought they were...well, you read it and decide for yourselves!
The Best Thing About This Book:
I like that there are two female protagonists, but Mead keeps the book written in the first person from Rose's point of view.
Appropriate for a younger audience:
Probably. There's a couple of PG-13 scenes, but on the whole it's a pretty clean book.
Total Score: 23/25
