{ Thoughts }

This novel has a rather morbid plot line but it sounds like an action packed story that will no doubt keep me engaged for several hours. I'm interested to see what sort of story this will be i.e. will there be any romance, social commentary etc. This seems like more 'boy'-ish YA, which there really isn't enough of so I look forward to getting my hands on a copy!
