This is my 71st read for the year
This is a story where teenagers are behaving strangely. One runs her car through a shop window. One sets fire to his house while his family is inside. One jumps off the roof of their school but seems to be happy about it. A teacher at their school - Mrs. Quill - needs to get to the bottom of what is happening before another students hurts themself or others.
I want to start by saying that I picked up this book at a used bookstore by accident. I was checking out, and must have scooped it into my pile without realizing it. It cost me $3 and so I figured what the heck - I would give it a try. It wasn't great. But again - that isn't completely the books fault. After I read it, I went online to look it up and realized it is book 2 or 3 in a series AND based on a TV show (a spin off of Dr. Who). I was completely lost in the story. It was random, and disjointed, and the story just moved very quickly without a lot of depth. Maybe I will try the show to see if that helps. I liked the idea of it - seemed like an interesting mystery. But the book just didn't live up to the back cover.
