For a YA book, I thought this was a pretty good story. I enjoyed the premise for sure, it was interesting to me, and something I have heard of before, but I hadn’t read about this magic power in a book that I can remember. Other than that, I sort of felt this book floated on the surface of its characters, it’s like a romantic comedy with a little hidden power that just…it was okay for me, but it didn’t hit me out of the park. Maybe I’m over YA books, because it always seems like no matter what topic it is, the underlying theme stays the same. I give this book 3 out of 5 stars, decent, but nothing too crazy.
