I really didn't like this book. I wanted to because of the themes explored here but the writing style, although clever, constantly pulled me out of the story. Lia was impossible to sympathise with. She was whiny and selfish. I understand that those are common characteristics of a person suffering from mental disorders, but her attitude was terrible. I didn't feel a connection with any of these characters. They were all badly written and as I was getting to know them through Lia, it didn't make them any better.I also don't understand the point of Elijah. He didn't benefit the story in any way. Or unless you count that it showed how immature and irresponsible Lia when she blindly trusted him.It's a shame really. I wanted to love it because I loved Speak.I do not recommend this book to anyone.
