Yet another satisfying story by Robyn. It has plenty of cheek, tense moments, action, and intrigue. The ending is satisfying for those deserving of a good one, but leaves a certain baddie in a huge pickle that might well affect everyone in whatever comes next. I will be awaiting that tale most eagerly.

I had a feeling that this book was going to cause me immense emotions, but I still went ahead and read it. That was my mistake.

Throughout this book, there was dread hanging over my head. When the setting's a place for kids with terminal illness, one kind of has to assume that someone's going to die. But it didn't go at all how I expected.

I held out through the end of this book and closed it without shedding a single tear, but then I broke down completely and got really angry at the world. Schneider's writing was beautiful and made me contemplate life in such a gorgeous way.

The premise was at points a little contrived, but this was forgivable. I enjoyed how Lane treated the situation and what this eventually led to, and I enjoyed how it initially felt so close to the books about students at boarding school that I used to read when I was young.

The group of characters Lane eventually fell into was fun and believable. They all felt like real people, and their dynamic was playful and carefree, a complete contrast to the atmosphere that the setting provided.

Schneider knows how to capture the vitality of life and this was an example of gorgeous writing. Anyone who likes John Green will like this one, and Schneider is an author to look out for.

Reason Read: ROOT, Alpha S
I've had this one for awhile on overdrive as a free Audiobook Sync summer program. While the story was interesting, I had a hard time because I just do not think sanitariums for youth exist. In this story, teens are sent to Latham House in Santa Cruz to protect society from them. A young adult book, explores themes of mortality and what is important in life.

Getting way too old for those type of books... or OH WAIT. I never liked them.
If you can think of a cliche, this book probably has it.
I still read it though, what's that all about?
