I wish I could have given it 3 1/2 instead of 4 stars. I devoured the first 70 pages, but it totally sagged in the middle. It certainly picked up at the end, but honestly I skimmed most of the middle. Boring: they drive around and talk, he drops her off at school, she cooks, he sleeps next to her, repeat, repeat, repeat. I loved Stiefvater's lyrical writing and her expert deployment of subtext, but unfortunately I don't think I'll be picking up the sequel. Yikes, that sounds harsh, but there are just so many other great books out there.
