I'm giving this book 3 stars because I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either. To be honest, I'm not sure how I really feel about it. I loved the idea of it - the setting and the storyline - but I didn't care for Ember's character or half of the boneheaded things she did. Ember was very immature and didn't act like someone who "always took care of her mother". I know she always said she did but her actions were not that of one who does anything adult-like.
I really liked Chase but I felt like we didn't get to know his character well enough - we knew why he did the things he did and that he really does care about Ember but we don't know anything else. He's very one-dimensional to me.
I can see why so many people love this book, it has a lot of potential, but it just didn't do it for me.
