First, it deserves 10⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Second, I’ve never read a story like this. It had everything. I’ve seriously stopped reading at certain points because I was dreading it coming to an end. I want more. I crave more. I need more to live..take pity on me, Rebecca!
Lana..oh Lana...nothing is as it seems. I love the depth of the characters. Layers upon layers of mystery and intrigue are revealed like peeling back an onion.
You must read this book. I’m totally going to push my book sisters to read it.

Edit~A ,

We’re all cursed—every single one of us.

This book was mind-blowing in a ways that I was lost, I did not know what was going on, but I knew that I was enjoying it. Ok most of the time I was frustrated and because I was really lost, did not understand what was happening, but the story kept me captivated despite that and I went on and on and on.

Now in my opinion the main character had a very pessimistic perspective of life, but at the same time I understood her. I related to her when it came to her curse, Honesty. I understood her, and that helped me to connect with her.

I did not enjoy the second part as much as I did the first one. There were many reasons for that, like the book seemed dragged and long, the conversations especially. I understand when you want to keep the suspense but dragging it again and again around the same topic loses people.

Another reason that the second part bothered me was that, I could not connect to her anymore. The character was all over the place, and the whole meaning of the series, the essence of it, THE CURSES, were lost here. In this book, they were out of place, to the point that I started to think, why do we even need them. It felt like it was there just to be there, but really did not have any impact on the story itself.

Third reason, was her jumping from one guy to another, but it did not bother me as much as not remembering her friends. I mean she did, but they were mentioned like two times or something. She never talked about them and never discussed them. Considering how close they were, it felt like the new friends just threw shadow on the old ones and they were forgotten just like that.

Now, there is one thing that I LOVED in both books, YES, the Harrison brothers. I mean, can you blame me? Finding out that there were no two of them but three mad my day (well reading). I shipped her with Parker since book one, and I know that it will not happen like ever after the revelation, but if it is a lie, then I want them together. The tension, and chemistry was there even more than with Joey or Grant. I just want to see it come true even though it goes against my morals.

Well, Grant was a nice guy, but their love mostly reminded me of puppy love. He was too good, and I agree with Ashton, I like good but I want some bad in there. I want a bad that is good to you. I just did not get excited for them when I read about them, did not get butterflies or anything, it was just meh, so that bothered me a bit.

Overall, this book was fun to read! The first part was shorter than the second part, but I liked the separation, because it was clear whee the story was going. The first part is pre-boarding school, part where everything happens, and the second part is past-boarding school phase. I usually do not like reading mysteries even though I love to solve them, but this one was different. I love the twists and the plot got even more twisted, now, I cannot wait to read the third book.
