    I downloaded the free sample on to my Kindle and read it yesterday. The first 5 chapters are very girly, teenage angst regarding romantic feelings the main character has for another character. It’s that’s your thing, then go ahead. It’s well written in first person format (not the easiest viewpoint to master) and looks like it might develop into something more worthwhile than the slush it starts off with; perhaps I do the author a disservice and it’s meant to be like that to show the stark contrast between earlier life and raw survival. However, if that’s the case, then it was over-laboured – 2 chapters would have sufficed.
