My Thoughts: This synopsis doesn't even begin to describe what happens in this book. I ended up giving it three stars, but only because it got a lot better in the last 100 pages. The first 300 were just completely far-fetched and ridiculous. I know, I know-- she was a very naive 16 year old girl. But come on. People aren't THAT dumb. Especially a girl who was supposedly very intelligent. I just didn't buy that this situation could have happened-- and that everything that could go wrong did go wrong. HOWEVER, I did enjoy the story once the "big secret" got out. I still had a hard time believing in how the story unfolded, but I'm not one to argue with a (somewhat) happy ending.
