something between 3 and 1/2 and 2 and 1/2!!! i like the writing and it flowed and it was so easy reading it, but then really the whole story and the problems were so ... one felt one and 1/2 reading it!! :) so if i wasn't in a good mood i would have hated this, that or if the writing was off (which wasn't!! :)) so 3 when i am feeling good and maybe 2 if i was in a bad mood. definitely won't recommend it, as well there are so many other books waiting to be read, though if you feel you want to read this, then do cause it won't be bad.
