Read full description of the books The Girl:
This is why I don't read that much YA anymore... the characters make me wanna scratch my eyes out! This story has a wonderful world set up with a great storyline and plot but the characters ruined it for me. They are SO IMMATURE! I even put this down numerous times telling myself that I couldn't possibly read anymore. This book had the potential but it just didn't reach it.
The reason I picked this book up (besides it being free) was because the allure of an angel book. I'm a sucker for a good angel romance and I thought I'd get that with this... but sadly no. I liked the storyline and set up. "Should angel and human unit, humanity will parish." I love a forbidden romance and when you add in angels well... sign me up! However, I was disappointed with this one.
Our heroine is the very human Emmy Baxter and I hated her. I know the heroine is 15 (turns 16 in the book) but damn, I wasn't THAT dumb, whiny, and immature at that age. Through the whole book I thought Emmy could have easily been a 10 or 11 year old, she was THAT immature.
She cares more about trivial things than more important things like people dying and the end of the world.
After meeting the hero the first time for only a few minutes she then decides she is in love with him with no basis for this AT ALL. I mean the dude doesn't even look at her and says maybe 5 sentences to her. She becomes obsessed and only ever thinks about him. The worse case of insta-love I have ever read....
"Omg, I love him because he's just sooooo cute and like, I don't care if he's got a girlfriend, I want him to be my boyfriend, maybe I should pass him a note and have him check a Yes or No on wether he will be my boyfriend, I hope he likes me, wonder if he likes me as much as I like him, no wait, I don't like him, I love him, he's my soul-mate I just know it"...... again, did I mention how immature Emmy was? She doesn't necessarily say this but this is how she comes across. Awful, just awful.
She was constantly crying at everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. When Emmy sees Marcus with his girlfriend she cries and throws a fit, when he doesn't show her attention she throws a fit, when he makes it clear he doesn't want her and has a girlfriend that he is practically married to (in the angel world) she kisses him (which he turns her down). I mean the girl is so pathetic I felt sorry for her. Marcus couldn't make it more clear he was taken... but Emmy of course has no pride or dignity and followed after him like a stray puppy.
Then the thing that surly made me think Emmy was a 10 year old was when she decides...
"Oh, I'll only save the world for you angels if Marcus will go on a date with me."
Really, come on, REALLY??? She is so selfish and immature and only thinks about herself! Hello, the worlds about to end and your the only clue the angels have and yet your only worried about getting a date with Marcus! Grow up you silly little girl. She even has the balls to ask this in front of Marcus's girlfriend... I was ecstatic when his girlfriend threw her across the room, hands down, my favorite part of this book.
Seriously, Emmy definitely gets the award for worst heroine in the history of YA books... ever! The only time I actually liked her (and that's pushing it) was when she was kidnapped and she put up a fight with her captors. It was the ONLY time in the whole book where she wasn't a weak and whiny brat.
And the hero Marcus... don't get me started on him. He just wanted his cake and to eat it too. He loves his girlfriend/wife but yet, he loves Emmy too (again, for no reason at all). One second he's taking his girl on romantic dates and telling her he doesn't want Emmy and after he leaves their date he's in Emmy's bedroom on his knees telling Emmy he loves her and he misses her but OH... WAIT... he's not ever leaving his girlfriend for her. I mean at times he was just as immature as Emmy. The two MC's ruin this whole damn book because they were just... ridiculous.... even for YA!
The plot had potential besides the instant love with Emmy and Marcus, that's if you take out all the characters and added new ones. The secondary characters were okay I guess. I liked Reece (even though his "crush" on Emmy came out of no where!) and of course Jay and the twins. The overall story and characters are almost laughable it's all just so ridiculous.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. The overall story just felt very juvenile. Thank goodess this was free. There are far better paranormal YA books out there.
