Let me get right to what I didn't like about the story. Get this out of the way like pulling off a bandage, as painless as possible. I hate how the author made the setting look. I happen to be from Hamilton, the city in the story, and specifically from some of the main areas pointed out in the story, and was slightly wounded to be referred as a neighborhood of drunks and crackheads. Granted they are around. Realistically though, they are everywhere. Not just in Hamilton either. It was just the picture painted of my hometown throughout the book making it look like a shithole. Actually, that exact reference was used.
With that said, I somehow still liked the story. It was a story a lot of people will relate to. Not the murder thing, but somehow they will connect to the girl, Jenna. I can't explain it without giving things away, so you will have to read it to find out what I mean.
