received for review (older than 2 of my kids... as old as a third.....)
I ended up liking this SO MUCH MORE than I expected.
So why only 3 stars?
Well, it lost a star for general first-novel issues-- needed tightening for sure.
And it lost another entire star for serious overuse of the F word.
I get it, they're the "bad guys". Having them use the F word every other sentence is a ridiculously not subtle way of proving that.
Overall, though, fun characters and an interesting premise.
(Plus, from what I saw doing some blog-stalking.... I'm willing to bet Jessica Dall has come a long way. I doubt her later stuff needs tightening.)
