Dragonfly Girl

We rated this book:


Kira has a lot on her shoulders; her grades are failing, caring for her mother, and fending off debt collectors. Things change when she writes a winning science report that comes with money and a trip to Sweden. The thing is, she may have bent the rules just a bit. Luckily, for Kira, this leads to a job offer with a top-secret laboratory and an experiment that may change her life; for better or worse.

Kira cares about science and her mother, that’s about it. She and all the other characters are flat, lifeless, and only have a couple of defining traits. The one exception is Will, whom I loved to hate and then grew on me; he’s a jerk that had a change of heart more than halfway through the book. The story starts too early, it truly starts about a third way through then ends too early, though I did like the way it ended. Almost everything was predictable and though I enjoyed the story and wanted to know how it ended, I also really wanted to put it down and never finish. There’s a love triangle, but it doesn’t take a priority and didn’t add anything to the story.
