Fantastic! Creative! Refreshingly original! Surprises at every turn (and there were a lot of turns)!

Kos is a sympathetic, interesting, and entertaining character — I loved following his thoughts and being privy to his thought process. Having Isabel offer her version of the events is an added plus! Isabel’s perspective is cleverly mixed into the story, provided only after she had listened to Kos’s audio-tapes completely, had access to his point of view, and thus had insight into Kos’s motivations and opinions before she tried to justify and explain hers.

Kos’s sisters, Libby, Briek, and Pel, are as diverse as they are intriguing. I would have liked to get to know them better, understand what their motivations and thoughts are, and learn what makes them tick. But, alas, as Kos doesn’t really understand girls, least among them his sisters, we, the readers, will just have to piece the puzzle together with the clues Kos provides us with and draw our own conclusions about them.

The eclectic mix of flavor added by the colorful supporting characters, the plot twists, and the creative narratives all pull together this unusually clever and entertaining story into one fun read!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
