My Thoughts: What really made this book, was the protagonist: Dusty. Despite being a living Nightmare, Dusty is like any other teen girl to be honest. Her voice is quirky and full of energy, but balanced out with a healthy dose of sarcasm. I really loved her character, and although the writing really wasn't the best (most of it was quite poor), she really stood out.
But now we get to the weird bit. The narrative was really upbeat and funny, whilst the book was a murder/fantasy/adventure... Strange, right? Nevertheless I eventually (and I mean eventually) got used to the oddness, and got enthralled by the plot line. It had some twists that kept me reading, and some questions I needed to know the answer to! Basically, this book was a fairly fun read... Just not 'wow'. The conclusion was interesting, and although it might not be your cup of tea, it's worth reading just to hear the ending I guess. But it is definitely not a favourite of mine... And would I read anything else by this author? Probably not...
"Yeah, well, the dog ate my notebook with all my good excuses."
Like I mentioned a lot in the review, this book had a really weird concept... A concept that sort of... Worked. I mean, it's difficult to explain how unusual and surreal the whole book was to be honest!
