Believe me, the begining of this book is very slow. The only reason I kept reading was because it was for school. I soon read more and it became VERY interesting. The characters came out more and we finally met their personalities. The plot became really high speed, and I LITERALLY couldn't put it down. For all of you who have read the first chapter and fell asleep, KEEP READING! I becomes really good. You'll be glad you didn't stop at the first page. I am still reading this book and can't wait to see what happens!
