I really enjoy the growth of relationship between Claudia and Michael. I also love the growing friendship between Claudia and the rest of the alkins. For me, these are the best things about this story.
Overall though, I am a little disappointed in this book. I just do not find the rest of the story very exciting. There are plot points that I find contradictory and character decisions that make very little sense. Much of the story lacks real direction, and the ending feels completely unnecessary other than to create plenty of angst for the next book.
I will continue to finish the series though to see where Ting takes it.
