Summary: Sixteen-year-old Cheyenne Wilder is sleeping in the back of the car while her stepmom fills a prescription for antibiotics. Before Cheyenne realizes what's happening, the car is being stolen.
My Review: 3.5 stars is higher than I was planning on giving this book, the bad far outweighs the good in it.
Let me start at the beginning with the biggest reason why I didn't like it (extremely mild spoiler - said thing begins within the first 10, 15 pages) she's like best friends with the person who KIDNAPPED her. So, a guy kidnaps you, and is most likely planning your death, and what do you do? You start telling him your life story & conversing and chatting with him like you would a friend. I found it entirely unrealistic.
Does anyone else see something wrong with this?
The overall story, other than that aspect, is pretty good, the reason(well, this cover, which for some reason I ADORE is a tiny contributing factor to this reason too) I gave this 3.5 instead of 2.5 stars is because I LOVE the main character, I love like 94% of the things about her, which is pretty good, I love her personality, and the fact that her blindness doesn't limit her much.
Overall, I recommend this, as long as you can overlook the weirdness of the best-friends thing.
