I really liked reading this book! It was a ton of fun choosing the alternate endings and having Hayley go down different paths. Buying this book is a choice that you shouldn't second guess!

My 13-year-old daughter read and re-read this book, each time with a different ending. She loved it and she's not a big reader. She's now working on another Liz Ruckdeschel book.

I had never read a "choose your destiny" novel before so I was very excited when I picked this one up. However, this was a disappointing experience. The concept was interesting enough and making choices about what Haley was going to do next was fun, but the book itself is badly written. The writing really is quite terrible and totally ruined the experience for me. Also, there are a lot of errors in this book that should have been spotted by an editor. I found these errors distracting and some of the writing just left me thinking, "WTF?" for example when the Spanish boy says, "No problemo." Really? I doubt someone from Spain would speak their own language incorrectly. If what they were going for was him mocking the Americans for saying things like that, it didn't come off like that at all, it just looks stupid. Also, they don't use pesetas in Spain anymore, they use the Euro.

This book at last saved karma building up on Coco's part. It was pretty interesting, and I managed to get to Paris with Sasha and the most popular girls (now that Coco and Whitney had fallen from grace). In my opinion "Rebel Yell" was probably the worst "Go Back to Page 1" ending. Luckily, I know I wouldn't choose that.
Also, it seems you get the chance to turn someone in, even if you're wrong, in every book. Irene, Sasha, and now Whitney. In the next book, I found out that you could also "Blame Hannah" which was like turning her in incorrectly.
