It was too much and made me feel like the author was trying to stretch out the chapters.

The book is completely entertaining from beginning to end, with a few surprising turns that draw you further into the story with each page turn.

I loved the way this was written, the characters felt real and the story line is very interesting.

Stitch is nothing like I thought it would be! It is the perfect mixture of a ghost story and a dystopia romance. I am just in awe with how the author created one world and then reveals that it wasn't what it seemed to be....

Alessa is a freshman at a college she didn't really want to attend. Her senior year in high school was a devastating one when she loses both of her parents in a car crash. Now she lives in a sorority house with only one friend and a ghost that keeps appearing to her.

After some research she find out her ghost once lived in the house she now lives in... over 100 years ago. She discovers how he and his family died and wants her friends Janie's help to send him a message in order to save his life.

I have to say the twists in this plot were amazing and well thought out. I had no idea how this was going to go from a ghost story into a dystopia and when it finally happened it was just perfect. Since this is the first book in a trilogy we are left with a cliffhanger that makes us beg for more!

'Stitch' is the first book in a new young adult series that crosses multiple genres. It follows the heroine of the series, Alessa, as she deals with her parent's deaths, figuring out she can see ghosts, fighting hellish nightmares and to top it all off - she's going to college. Will Alessa be able to unravel the secrets haunting her school and figure out who - or what - the strange apparition she is drawn to really is before it's too late?

Being the first book in an exciting and intriguing trilogy, 'Stitch' is a highly addictive novel that leaves the reader wanting more. The plot is very well written and fast paced, which makes it almost impossible to put down. The characters - especially Alessa - are all likable and believable, which makes it easy to identify with them. The plot itself is wonderful - it blends so many different genres that it defies a label. Mixing aspects of dystopian, science fiction, paranormal romance, action, and mystery - this book is one that will leave you thinking about it long after the last page. The narrative itself is full of twists and adventure and it kept me guessing. I loved the way the concepts blended together to create something completely unique and memorable. This is a fantastic start to what will surely be an exciting and addictive trilogy, and I highly recommend it to fans of all genres, as it defies being labeled as just one. I will definitely be eagerly awaiting the next book in the series!

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

This is only the 2nd review I've written but I couldn't suppress my need to warn other readers away from this novel. I purchased this book for only 99 cents so I can't fairly say I feel robbed of money but I certainly feel robbed of my time. The main problem with this book is it's length. The first half is very nearly totally pointless. The author goes on and on and on and... ON about a whole lot of nothing. The parts of the story that have ANY bearing on the overall plot could be condensed into a couple of chapters, at best.

How is she able to waste so many words? By giving lots of random narratives of daily routines and tons of introspective thoughts and feelings of the main character... Over and over again. We read again and again how the character feels, hashed and rehashed every few pages. Super repetitive, brings new meaning to beating a dead horse. It was actually draining to read. I can't imagine how an editor wouldn't stop the madness or even a friend reading drafts, ANYONE who read this book could have saved a little bit of the mire that is the first half of the novel with some gentle perspective offered to the author.

The plot is very weak, the twist is a letdown and the lack of motive from the "bad guys" really leaves the reader wanting. At one point the main character even asks "What's their motive?" and the other character basically replies... your guess is as good as mine. To me this sums up a big plot hole. Without giving too much away... why would these "bad guys" perpetuate such an elaborate plan to thawart the good guys? I could list a dozen other fatal flaws but, I digress. Nothing here adds up here. I understand this is part of a trilogy and not everything is going to be explained and tied up in a neat bow. However, write the book as it's own story first...

I've wanted to read "Stitch" since the first time I saw the beautiful and original book cover. The book summary skyrocketed my curiosity, and with all the positive reviews and hype this book has been receiving, I was seriously looking forward to reading it. Sadly, the cover and the blurb ended up being the best part of the book for me.

I had lots of difficulties settling into the story and liking or connecting with the characters. Alessa, in my opinion, is too miserable and rather dull. Reading from her point of view, I often found myself yawning or dozing off due to an overload of unnecessary information not advancing the plot in any way. Much time is spent on her inner voice and her observations and conclusions which, again, didn't add much to the story. It only started picking up for me in the last half of the book when Alessa discovers the truth about herself, her sister, Isaac, and the rebellion. Although the story developed at an incredible pace after Janie's confession, it became rather ridiculous. The whole tv show scenario was just too much and if you ask me, simply not a good enough "twist". I was enormously disappointed with this development in the storyline as it is somewhat of a weak twist, and I guess I just expected something a lot more fascinating and imaginative. I was hoping for something new and exciting; something I've never read before.

"Stitch" is not a complex read. I finished it in less than a day as the writing is utterly simplistic and very precise. Durante is a good writer and where I've found a lot of grammar errors in more than half the books I've read in the past year and a half, "Stitch" is - grammar wise - well edited. I came across a few inconsistencies, though minor hindrances, but ones I noticed right away.
