ChCrmr ,

not bad, not great

The topic of the story is good and well placed in modern times, but the character mae really annoyed me the whole time, it's weird to hate the maincharacter of a book. And most importantly I did not like the ending of the story. Not my favorite book but it was still interesting to read.

Bad for school

Really hard for students from Germany to understand

Not too bad. Nice reading but not really well written.

I wouldn't buy it again. But I understand people liking it.
