Wait, what??? I just spent an entire book rooting for the mean girl? You know the girl I'm talking about - that beautiful, popular high school goddess who treats everyone like crap and doesn't feel the least bit bad about it? Yeah, her - that's Alona. Or rather, that's who Alona would have been in any other YA book. Not here, though. Somehow, Stacey Kade took a character I would normally love to hate and transformed her into someone I actually LIKED. I don't know how she did it but damn, I'm impressed. Alona & Will are an awesome pair. Can't wait to read more.
