I do think the girls were just a little stereotyped. The Wholesome Nice Girl, the Misunderstood Bad Girl, and the Stuck Up Rich Girl become friends in spite of their differences? A little cliche.
However, the ending brought it together in a very shocking, exciting way. I loved the scene in the basement.
Still, at the very end, one of the girls, in my opinion, crosses the line in a very major way, and loses all my sympathy. Mild spoiler: Brooke wasn't raped, and she had no right to take such extreme revenge. If you kill everyone who is mean to you, you're going to rack up quite a body count by the time you get through life.
I will read the next two books, because I think it's a great story. But I hope there is some justice along the way.
I will only refer to the story in a general way, because it would be a shame to ruin the refreshing experience this tale offers. Everything you look for in this genre of books is there: good writing, fast pace, deftly created plot, supernatural abilities, and very compelling characters. It depicts three very different school girls - all lonely, hurting, and distrustful- whose growing friendship offers them the chance to learn what it takes to heal and help support others. Coping with sexual assault is a major plot feature, which is tastefully done. It appropriately draws the readers' empathy for how tragic this experience is. The development of paranormal abilities help the three heroines gain confidence, and offers them a sense of freedom they must learn not to abuse. There is, of course, a major mystery to be solved. The result is a book that is a breath of fresh air.
I was resigned to a tale of teenage angst...but after the first chapter the story became harder and harder to put down. This is a good story and a fascinating glimpse into the mind of three very different young women.
The characters were well written, and more importantly for a YA novel the three girls sounded like teenagers, not adults trying to sound young.
The story was very compelling, I read it in a single day because I did not want to put the book down, and I was smiling at the end.
As for editing, normally a problem for many kindle books, I saw a few minor mistakes, but fewer than I've seen in many big name novels.
This book deserves five stars and a wide audience.
