Despite the fact that this is a book geared to young adults, I was completely transfixed by this story. The writing is clearly geared to YA readers, with a lot of pop culture references (Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, etc.) but the actual story is pretty sophisticated, which is what makes the book so engaging. I really liked the premise of a young girl forced to grow up on a reality tv show, it makes for a realistic storyline, since reality tv is so prevalent. I thought the characters were actually well developed, especially Estella.
The plot has a lot of layers, and I certainly did not expect all the twists and turns that occurred. I thought I knew where the story was going, and was surprised to find myself led in a completely different place in the end. There is a lot of suspense and mystery in the story, without it being heavy handed. Young adult readers who are fans of suspense books will enjoy this, but I believe many adult readers, like me, will enjoy it as well.
