Lately, I felt like Scott's books weren't up to her usual standards, but maybe it's because she's experimenting with all these different ideas. But this one I actually liked better than the newer ones, like As I Wake, Between Here and Forever, and Bloom. I like the whole concept, and it was gripping to be in a mind of someone who's probably suffering from PTSD and yet no one seems to understand or notice. And Joe...he was a big reason as to why I liked this book better than the books mentioned above...;) But of course, I still miss her old ideas when it was mostly just realistic fiction and romance. She's still as talented and poetic as ever.
