This sounded like such a good book. When I started it I felt like I'd missed something. That maybe there was a prequel or novella telling readers who the characters were. Apparently it is a stand alone. I had no clue who the characters were, it took forever to get to anyone's back story, Fin's anorexia seemed to only be a thread to add additional words -- it didn't move the story along. I didn't care about any of the characters and the writing was awful. I kept reading it because I kept waiting for it to get better, that there would be something solid in the story. It never happened.
