This was a really amazing story. One part Lolita, one part Pretty Little Liars, and one part Twilight Zone. While the story of a teacher getting involved with a student is nothing new, the author certainly puts a unique and thrilling spin on it in this book. What I liked best about the story was just when you think you know where it is going, a new twist is thrown at you. It keeps you on your toes as a reader, and I was really surprised at the ending. The action moves quickly from the beginning, and kept me glued to the book. I finished the book in about 3 hours, because I just could not put it down.
The only drawback for the book, for me, was the character development. I found the characters to be a little flat, not as robustly developed as I would have liked. This is not a terribly unusual thing for thrillers, often developing the action is a higher priority, and the action was certainly well developed in the story. However, I found myself unable to connect with the characters. Had there been just a bit more development of them upfront, I think I would have felt the pain of the story a lot more intensely. As it was, I had no pity for Cam, but I had no anger for him either. This is just a personal preference, wishing for more character development. The story certainly works as it is.
