Book Review #976
Into the Wild by Sarah Beth Durst
Rating: two stars (out of four)
I had expected something really different from the story from reading the back cover. I thought this book was likeable, but I didn't feel like the development of the characters was done well because I wasn't in love with any of them or wanting to get inside their heads. The cover was intriguing and I liked it. I'm not sure I really like the whole "cat as your one and only sibling" idea because it just seemed a little off and weird. There's a sequel to this story, but I'm not sure I will read it. I was disappointed with this book, even though it had an original concept and involved fairy tales. I thought the follow-through could have been better.
