After a freak accident surrounding one of her classmates (where everyone blames her, but it was really her "imaginary" friend), Rin's mother sends her to live in Japan with her grandparents and cousin. Her grandfather is super strict and her grandmother is distant. Rin doesn't feel welcome at all, but at least her cousin, Haruka, seems happy to have her there. Things go from miserable to plain weird when she meets Matt, one of her classmates at her new school who claims to have a manga that can tell the future. Said manga actually seems to be focusing around Rin's life, with freak accidents and deaths coming at them left and right. What is going on? Rin and Matt team up to figure out what the hell is going on before either one of them, or any of their friends, is next.
I did spend the majority of the book having no idea what the heck was going on. What's up with the fortune telling manga? Where the hell did it come from? What's up with her fear of closets? What the hell is this thing with the glowing eyes? Why is everyone dying? These and many more questions swirled around in my head. Most were answered by end, but I still had a couple that weren't. For example, where the hell did this manga come from?! Why can it do what it does?? It was a little bit frustrating, but overall I really loved the concept of it! If I'm being honest, it's very interesting!
Another thing was that the formatting of my e-book was way off. Now, I know this is probably not the author's/publisher's fault--I could've done something to mess it up. But some sentences just cut off right in the middle! Most of the time I could piece together what I missed, but it was still annoying, and I can't help but feel like I may have missed something important.
But overall, I really liked it! It was very interesting, pretty action filled, and I was totally not expecting for this certain someone to be the bad guy! Great plot twist! The ending indicates there will be a sequel, so I'm looking forward to reading that (and hopefully finding out about the origin of this mysterious manga)!
