  7. Someone Knows was good, but not great.There was a lot of unnecessary words and descriptions in the book it probably would have been a good 50 pages shorter if the editor had cut all the needless babble out.I did have a hard time keeping track of who the parents were I had to...

  8. Lisa Scottoline is one of my favorite authors I gave her last book, Feared, a 5 star review So why did I dislike this book so much I guess entitled, privileged teenagers aren t my favorite protagonists, plus a book with no likable characters doesn t usually work for me I don t think I would have even finished this one if I hadn t received an advance review copy in exchange for an honest review But I did finish it, and I really disliked both the characters and the plot line Needless to say, Lisa Scottoline is one of my favorite authors I gave her last book, Feared, a 5 star review So why did I dislike this book so much I guess entitled, privileged teenagers aren t my favorite protagonists, plus a book with no likable characters doesn t usually work for me I don t think I would have even finished this one if I hadn t received an ad...
