uggggh!!! This book was sooooo stupid!! Okay, first of all, the writing just made me plain angry; it was like a fifth grader wrote it. No, I take that back--I wrote better stuff than this in fifth grade. Or at least more original stuff. ANYWAY, so the writing was just plain awful and stupid, with no thought put into it whatsoever; the plot was lame, about how everyone's lives depended on this high school test called XCAS (hahaha...); the characters had no depth; overall, it was a predictable, shallow book that I would not recommend to anyone.
