4/5 Oscars: Really liked it...
-- My Thoughts --
There is no summery needed for such a short piece, but the main character is the one I liked. Leia is a tough girl but one who never questioned her lifestyle or the authorities. She develops throughout the book into a curious, hard-to-crack girl. The character development was evident and I liked it. Although the other main characters were not as much fleshed out, and they felt two - dimensional at times, I hope that the author explores them more in the sequel, if there is a sequel. Since I don't know if this is a standalone, or a prequel, or the first in a series.
The only problem that I had with it is that it was too short for me. I rarely read books that are less than 130 pages, at least. So, i wanted this to be longer. I hope that the author will continue in the genre, since she evidently has a talent.
