The middle of the story was blogged down with many unnecessary facts and figures. The storyline began to move at a snail's pace. My mind started to wander and I was wondering if I would be able to finish the book.
When the ending finally rolled around, the action finally picked back up. I really liked the ending. I found Melanie to be a very enduring character. I really think shortening the book could have made this a four or five star read. The center of the storyline was just too boring.
