After reciting the mantra: I shall not compare to Twilight, I shall not compare to Twilight...over and over....I can say I really really liked this book. Actually even with the similarities with "other" stories... It was more than I expected. The interaction and relationship building between the characters was awesome...love the frenemies vibe, how they rant, the sexual tension.... loved it!!! and it gets real knowing they are young... without beign cheesy and overly prude... you can feel the lust-love-tension right there.
The book made me LOL several times... and I am grateful for the normalcy in conversations and wording...sometimes I really get annoyed when I read teens talking in slangs and snobby or weird.
The whole idea and the scifi behind the story is interesting and semi-original.
The only thing I can complain about is that the storyline in certain points was predictable to the core...
I will read the rest and I can recommend this book to anyone fond of the genre.
