the girl who could fly

Kind of a boring title, huh? Not sure why Victoria Forester couldn't come up with something just a teensy bit more interesting, but whatever. There's been a lot of hype about this book since Stephenie Meyer posted on her website that everyone should read it. I'll admit, that's why I requested it from the library. I like Stephenie Meyer. She's not my favorite author, but I have respect for her and faith in her taste in books. She's recommended other books that I've really loved (The Hunger Games for example). Unfortunately, it wasn't a great read. It was a bizarre X-Men meets the hillbillies mix that just didn't work for me. I thought the writing was good until the climax (which was very choppy and sudden). Not much else to say. At least it was a quick read!

Oh, how interesting. I used to have a neighbor named Victoria Forester. I wonder if it's the same person.

By the way, I love this blog! It's fun to hear your interesting opinions on these books, and it's a great reference for me when I need a new book to read!
