It took me a little while to get immersed in this book, because a lot of characters and plot elements are introduced at the beginning. As I read it, I enjoyed it more and more, and I finished it with a big sappy smile on my face.
Gin is a dreamer. She wants to escape from her unusual family and chase her Anime dreams. With such big dreams she has to learn to balance her expectations without compromising her goals. To say Gin's family is unorthodox is a bit of an understatement but I liked her quirky family, some more so than others.
Gin discovers that people are not always what they seem, that having different opinions is not necessarily a bad thing. I wasn't so keen on her parents but really liked her kooky Grandma. I also wanted to know more about Nate.
I couldn't really make my mind up about Gin. She's quite immature at times and I struggled to connect with her voice, but I appreciated her determination and loyalty.
I liked Aaron. He's probably the most balanced and mature character in the story. I did feel as though certain characters took advantage of his reliability and kindness sometimes.
The pacing is a little slow at times but I think this is largely because of my confusion about Gin. I liked the message and Gin's optimistic outlook. We should never stop dreaming, but look for a way to balance our ambitions.
3 Stars in my Sky!
