At first this book dragged for me and I just wasn't so sure about it. I was like why is everyone raving about this book, but then it finally picked up and I could just not put it down. I love the Cyborg Cinderella feel. The story was great, I know it was suppose to be like a Cinderella futuristic book, but it still had its own story. I enjoyed, and I do have the next two books Scarlet & Cress, and I do look forward to reading those. I hope they are a lot better, I heard they were so we'll see!
