Both me and my friend started reading this book, thought it was great but then never had the desire to finish it. Did anyone else find it to be a bit "meh..."? I noticed it dropped off of the Bestseller lists pretty quickly.

I had the same experience- I was so excited to read it- waited for a while to get it from the library wait list- and then it just didn't call to me. I loved the premise but it just didn't hook me. I think it didn't help that I had just read Scorpio Races. I think I need to feel connected the the characters and I just didn't. . .

It's on the Alex Awards this year. I read it and really enjoyed it.
