Well overall this is a very good book as all the others in the series but... I do NOT like Nada which is why this book did not meet my expectations at all. I think she is really annoying and the whole time I was hoping she would get shot or sent to the guillition or eaten by the locust thingys (horrible I know). But to all you who are planning on not finishing the series at all because of the awful Nada character... Do not fear! : She is shot and killed about 1 or 2 more books in the series!! Yay! And Judd finally realizes he really didn't like her all that much in the first place! Whoo hoo! So the rest of the series is wonderful! Great read.
