2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.

When Jane’s best friend Allison sells her soul to the devil, she sacrifices her own soul to save her friend. But to make matters worse, she falls in love with a boy who is 116 years old, and she has to keep from being expelled from school.

When I first read this book, I really liked it. However, now, I’m not as impressed as I was then. The book is kind of normal for this type of genre. The friend, who doesn’t enough self-confidence, sells their soul. Then their friend has to save them, and then that friend meets a boy they most likely shouldn’t fall in love with. So, sort of common, but still kind of enjoyable with the slight romantic moments between Owen and Jane.

Not only is the plot very common within the supernatural genre, the book wasn’t long enough and didn’t have enough descriptions to keep my attention for a re-reading. Unlike the first time I read it, I didn’t find the suspense in it, despite only reading it only two years ago. I also wish there were a more definite ending to this book – especially between Owen and Jane. :(

Overall, I found the book incomplete, full of plot holes, not enough descriptions, and the characters too typical. So, I wouldn’t read it more than once. :(

Jane Jarvis and Allison Concord have been best friends for a long time, but what does Jane do when she finds out Allison has sold her soul to the devil? As Jane tries to save her friend’s soul, she sacrifices her own soul to save the soul of her friend. What could make matters worse? She falls in love with a 116-year-old boy, and she has to keep from getting expelled from school.

Yes, I know, another supernatural book. I love them. :) Short review because I read it like four days ago, and I don’t really remember much. :( Though, I remember what I didn’t like about it. ;)

This book is actually pretty good. I like how the author made the devil into an organization, instead of just being one person. There is tons of suspense and twists in the book, and I just fell in love with Owen. :)

The book was too short and not really enough description, but for some reason, I really like the lack of description. For the ending of this book, it wasn’t really completed, so I hope that the author will come out with a sequel or something. So, my only pet peeves with this book were that it was too short and the ending was kind of bad. :(

Other than those things, it is a pretty good book, if you just want something to do in like one afternoon. :)
