Silver in the Blood - Jessica Day George

Really, I wished I could reach into the pages and wring the necks of most of these girls relations. From emotional neglect, to outright physical harm, they run the gamut on them, and nothing is really done about it. It put a true damper in my enjoyment.

 

The writing is serviceable, the plot while not very original, passes muster. I'm really not the intended audience. That said, I LOVED Deja's and Lou's relationship. True friendship is one of Day George's strong suits, and it shows in this book too.

 

The story closes with a lot of loose ends to set up for a series. I was certainly left with many questions

 

Beyond the girls future adventures with the Society, what will happen with Deja's unborn sibling? And what about grandma dearest?

(show spoiler)

I don't think I'll read a continuation regardless.
