Book Review: Damselfly
Why I read it: Netgalley review copy
Publication date is Nov 11 2013
The Characters: I don't know that I really cared very much about any of the characters. Lina was a bit self-centered, even while trying to do unselfish things. And beyond that I didn't really get much of a feel for any of the other characters.
The Setting: The book was set in the future, but there really wasn't a whole lot of world building going on. A few things were mentioned here and there, but it was all very secondary to the plot.
Who Should Read This: I'm not sure who I would recommend this to. It reads almost like a middle grade novel, but the love story seems geared more towards the young adult level.
Final Thoughts: This book was okay. The subject and plot were different from a lot of the other YA novels out there, but in the end, it was all pretty forgettable. It seems that this is the start of a series, but I'm not sure if I would continue on with it. I guess it depends where it's all going.
Cover Thoughts: The cover is pretty cute. They've done a good job depicting Lina, I think.
Grade: 2 stars (it was okay)
