2.5 stars. The writing was decent, but the plot wanted to be deeper than it was and the characters went from one extreme to the other. Alternately, our heroine was brazen and timid, overly intelligent and too dumb to live. Other characters claimed she was a planner, but she seemed much more likely to shoot her mouth off and do something stupid, then claim to be shy and easily intimidated. It annoyed me, but I finally gave up on the story when the obligatory love triangle showed up. I skimmed the last few chapters to be done with the thing.
