Alexa Y. - This definitely sounds like Pretty Little Liars – high stakes, lots of drama and interwoven stories. It sounds exciting, but not quite the type of thing I’d want to read at this particular time. It’s bad enough having to deal with cliffhangers in my fantasy series; I can’t imagine dealing with a cliffhanger in a series like this one!

Rachel - So I know we talked a little bit about this book earlier this week, but for some reason after reading your review I want to read it now. Like, I can totally see why it wasn’t for you, but this sounds like the kind of thing I love. I love crazy cliffhangers because they always mess with my brain. Oh, and this sounds like Pretty Little Liars or some other teen show like that and I love those so I could definitely see myself liking this one.

Kelly - This sounds EXACTLY like Pretty Little Liars! Friends who are reunited, a new best friend finding it awkward to fit in with the old best friends, one girl’s love of photography, one girl who is Miss Super Academia, Class President straight-A student, someone knowing intimate details of your life that you thought you hadn’t shared with anyone…

If it’s written anything like that TV show (I haven’t read the books), then I can see why you wouldn’t be able to put it down!

Frustrating that it ends on such a killer cliffhanger though. Like you, I like for the main issues to be resolved and for me to continue with a series out of love for the characters – not out of a desire to get the answers to book one.

Lori - I have a very love hate relationship with cliffhangers. I think I’ll probably skip this one. Thanks for the fab review!

Laura @ the Booksmartie - Mhm…it’s weird, somehow…your review made me really, really curious about the series 🙂 I mean, I should actually do what you said you do: not start every YA series that’s out there, cause I usually end up confronted with a pile of books to read and characters to remember without really caring about the books or the characters anymore. Anyway, I didn’t really know what to expect from this book from just the synopsis, but your review gave a really good overview and now I find myself really excited. Probably also because, if I do like a series, I don’t mind cliffhangers 🙂 Definitely thanks for the great review!

Janita @ Book, Interrupted - I think I can live with that cliffhanger. Is still sounds like an interesting read, but I’ll probably wait until at least the next book comes out to get to it. Great revewi!

Vy - Hmmm I’ve been seeing some raving reviews but I’m not exactly a fan of the super drama. And oh my goodness those cliff hangers. They cause so much pain but yet I still read it. Thanks for the great review, Estelle!

Mel@thedailyprophecy - Oh boy, I hate cliff-hangers. If there is one thing I can’t stand.. I hate it when I am forced to read the other books in order to understand the story. I need a bit of closure.. I’m not going to read this one any time soon, thanks for the warning.

elena - UGH CLIFFHANGERS!!!! i totally agree with you. that’s why i try (keyword: try) to wait until a series is done to binge. i can see why you would stay up late to read this book. it def sounds like a page turner and would make a good, soapy teen show.
