I think this is a love it or hate it kind of book and even harder to review. The writing is fantastic, the metaphors and side stories captivating. I just never connected with the characters and that is probably a me thing and not due to the writing of the story. I was intrigued for much of the story trying to figure out what was going on with Ruby and why she had such a pull over the whole town and how the town of Olive at the bottom of the reservoir fit into the story. But I never liked Ruby or Chloe enough to be invested in them. I honestly wanted someone in the town to tell Ruby no and stand up to her. I did like that this book was about sisters and the bonds that can be between them. As messed up as the bond between Ruby and Chloe were. This is definitely different than most other YA I've read. There is not love story and most of the boys in the story are just used and thrown away If you like the Virgin Suicides or Donny Darko then this is probably right up your alley but I'm really not a huge fan of the genre so far.
