Recensioner

Välskriven, väberättad och snabbläst, men man ska nog vara tonåring (eller en mer romantiskt lagd vuxen än jag) för att riktigt uppskatta den här boken. Finns en del brister i storyns trovärdighet. Låtsaskriget, som upptar väldigt stora delar av boken, tyckte jag inte var särskilt intressant. De sista hundra sidorna, av 350, var bäst.
