I was pleasantly surprised with this book. It was interesting, enjoyable, well-written, and really short.
It's more of a novella than an actual novel. I thought Wells told the whole story, I didn't feel like there was anything left out or underdeveloped, but it did seem short. It was an ending I was not expecting, at all, and it was rather abrupt. Not only on what happened, but a lot is left unknown. Which I kinda liked.
In such a short novel, the characters were well developed. I understood Briana's character (though I didn't like her much), as well as Kyle and his father and the official peoples that get involved. Unlike Briana, I did like Kyle and respected (and was somewhat relieved by) how he handled the situation.
I must say, the cover is rather a turnoff for me. Not a big fan. But the actual story is a good one.
Briana Fox is the wildest girl in school. She and Kyle have been close for a long time...almost lovers. Kyle is afraid that if he pushes her, he'll have his heart broken and lose his best friend. When Briana discovers a mysterious "power drug" in a cave, two government agents are desperate to find the source and turn Briana into a human experiment. Will Kyle risk everything to protect his love?
