OVERALL RATING 5/10

Important story, far too fast-paced

This book tells an important story, and I honestly wish I could give it a much higher rating. Unfortunately, the pace of this book is far too fast. The scenes included are only the bare minimum to convey the story, and even then many plot points didn't make sense. I never felt invested in any characters, as there was no time to learn who they where. It really is too bad, since this could have been an amazing book with a couple hundred extra pages. Sadly, I would not reccomend reading this one.
