Maybe because I was reading this late at night and I was tired, or maybe because I just finished reading a bunch of M. Sexton books (who I rate as one of my favorite MM authors) but this book became unreadable. I liked the last Calmes book I read but I seem to agree with people who have read a lot of her books. They are all very similar. Jory was just too perfect and all his devoted followers seemed pointless to write about. To me all of Jory's irrelevant admirers were overkill to show how adorable/loveable/perfect Jory is. This became a "Did not finish" at 40%. I'm bummed because I was looking forward to reading all 4 books and I feel let down.
