Every which way she looks, Miranda can’t get on the other side of the law, even her boss thinks that she is somehow involved in the professor’s murder. People that Miranda thought she could trust might be against her all along.
From the very beginning of this book, I had it pegged. I knew exactly what was going to happen, and it irks me that I was right. I feel like I wasted my time on this book, because it just didn’t have any qualities that made me gasp, or get excited over. I knew the twist from the very first couple of chapters, and I just didn’t enjoy this book that much.
This book could have gone in so many awesome directions, but it just felt like Miranda was getting beaten down on every possible action that she took, and then all of a sudden there is an awakening within her, and she figures out what is actually going on in her life. The plot was strangely put together, and some of the characters were just out of place. Not that great of a book, and I’m sad I spent my time reading it. I give this book 2 out of 5 stars.
