I was initially full of hope for this book. I thought the premise of the story had a great deal of potential. As I got about half way through the book, I realized that the story was just a bit too contrite. I kept reading in the hope that it would get back to its potential but I do no think it did. Overall it is not a bad story. I rated it 3 stars because Amazon consider that rating to mean that it it was an "OK" read.
