Billy criticizes some books

Hi. I will be criticizing a book for the next three weeks.

A mandatory introduction

Girl, Stolen - April Henry

My name is Billy, and I'm rereading Girl, Stolen by April Henry. It isn't a particularly good book, but sometimes you just want to laugh at some ridiculous or over-the-top characters. 


I've gotten to page 197 so far, and a second read did not help my liking of the characters. The melodramatic nature of the book does not help. It seems like such an interesting concept- a blind kidnap victim- but the idea doesn't work. What you get instead is a number of forgettable characters that act so irrationally it's funny.
