What initially drew me to Gypsy was the premise. It just sounded so intriguing! I mean, a bunch of kids with genetic mutations kind of like X-Men?? Yes please! I love me some Marvel! And awesome supernatural abilities ;)
I really loved seeing all the different abilities that the kids had! They were really cool! However, I had a hard time keeping all the characters straight since there were SO many of them... Especially after they were given they're "real" name! So confuse! By the end of the book, though, I think I knew who was who and who did what.
Overall, I thought our main character Gypsy was likable. There were some instances were she just made me go...
She was just too forgiving, too fast! Especially when it came to Jude and Dane. I don't know girly... you're a little too trusting.
Speaking of Dane and Jude, at the beginning of the book I was suspecting a love triangle going on (I hate love triangles, by the way!) But I was wrong! It was so much worse and crazier than I love triangle! It was a love freakin' square! My reaction:
We have her best friend Mole, the friendly charming guy Jude, and the understanding new guy Dane. I think Gypsy might be leaning more toward Jude, but I totally ship Gypsy and Mole! I really like him! The other guys, not so much. Dane was just too suspicious and Jude seems very clingy and just... Ugh! He frustrated me a lot! Especially toward the end when he ruined everything!! But I can totally do Mole ;) He's cool.
Another character I really liked was Geoff! Once you get that kid talking, he is pretty freakin' awesome! Gypsy's dad... I just have to say that Gypsy meeting her father was the sweetest, most awkward thing ever! It was very endearing them getting to know each other for the first time and getting used to having a daughter/father. I really loved seeing their relationship develop!
As I said before, the concept and story was very intriguing and I loved it! It was just very interesting for me to read about these cool genetic mutations on the origins of where they came from, though we don't get to much info on this so I want to know more! I also liked that the book started of with action right at the beginning! It really captured my attention, making me want to know more! Unfortunately, the fast pace that was in the beginning didn't make it to the middle. It was just very slow for me, so it took me longer than usual to finish this book because it was just so easy for me to put down. I also wasn't too crazy over the writing, at the start. It just felt like it didn't flow too well... or something! Something was just off about it, but I managed to get past that :)
And don't even get me started on that cliffhanger! I NEED TO KNOW MORE! The story was just great and so much fun to read about. I really cannot wait to find out about the origin of the Cavies and what will happen next! Eeep!
