Thank you for confirming my distrust in humanity!
The ending of this book catapulted it to 4-stars. Before that, I had been grumbling at Justine's rosy way of thinking and how she trusted that everything would work out alright if only she did the right thing, which I think it's utter baloney. Sometimes doing the right thing is difficult BECAUSE there's a big risk things would turn out wrong, just like it happened at the end of this book.
I'm really looking forward to Justine discovering the price of her naivete. I really don't mind people that are positive and think the best of others but it drove me mad how she would take a big risk with the secrets of others. It's one thing to leave yourself vulnerable because you think it's right, it's another to expose other people!
I have to confess though that even I was surprised at how low the villain stooped. I mean, I never liked him and I knew he had it in him to (view spoiler)
Ms. Wisocky does a great job portraying Justine but her voices for men are a bit weird sometimes. It takes a while to get used to her style but once you do, the narration flows seamlessly.
I've already started the third book. I can't wait to see how it ends!
