"Never, ever cry. ... Eureka Boudreaux's mother drilled that rule into her daughter years ago. But now her mother is gone, and everywhere Eureka goes he is there: Ander, the tall, pale blond boy who seems to know things he shouldn't, who tells Eureka she is in grave danger, who comes closer to making her cry than anyone has before."
I thought that this book had an interesting opening that made me want to read it more. It was interesting to see the incident that made Eureka that character that she was and it was also great knowing part of her past already at such an early stage in the book. I thought the story was unique and it was something that I've never really read about before.
I liked most characters and I thought they were well written. I especially like Eurekas friends andd her family. Not so much Rhoda because there was something about her that made me hate her.Maybe it was how she treated Eureka,I would not advise treating someone who is in the same situation as Eureka as Rhoda did. I though Eureka and Ander's first interaction was a very strange one and not knowing who, or what, Ander really was made him mysterious. I was very interested in what was happening to brooks because the early descriptions of him didn't really match the interactions I read and so something about him always felt off.
Unfortunately half way through this book I felt like I was getting bored and I think that was because it felt to me like the story took a while to actually play out. That changed though at the end and that ending made me want to read the next book so that I can read about what happens next.
Overall this book was good and although it may take longer to read I do recommend it to everyone.
