This book is hard to review...I LOVE reapers, but this was just not what I expected. The blurb of the book had me believing that it would be a fluffy, light, and humorous read...I was wrong!
There was more teenage drama than reaper stuff. But the teenage stuff was interesting and quite amusing at times, so the book never manged to bore me (a definite plus!) The reaper stuff is what I really wanted, though, and we got most of it in the last 10-20% of the book. And even then, it was REALLY depressing! I was seriously crying my eyeballs out, no lie! I say I like books with emotion, but this was a just a little too much for me.
I was not a fan of the ending...like I said, it was depressing. But the very, very end we get a Happy Ending, I guess. So, I wasn't a fan of the general ending, but I like happy endings, so...yay!
Aside from all the crying I did, the book also made me laugh, which I always love in a book. I adored Ben! He was such a sweet guy! Very nice, too. I actually liked Quincy...she's one of those popular girls, but in the end she loses that self-centeredness and does a selfless act.
Overall, it was an okay read...it was one of those books I like to call an in betweener: a book I neither love nor hate. It was just...okay.
