This was the first book by this author I've had time to read and it's one I've been dying to read. I loved it! This story is like Glee meets Goosebumps.
Our story follows Rebecca Hope as she watches almost helplessly as her favorite musical comes to life around her. Th story is very well thought out and beautifully executed.
I'm a little surprised thought that with all the reviews I've read for this book, not one person bothered to mention any of the errors sprinkled through the book (ex. poll instead of pole). Granted the errors aren't a major issue and won't impede reading flow, but they are noticeable.
I wasn't too thrilled with the main character, Rebecca. She never told anyone who could have helped about the death threats she'd been receiving throughout the book. When her rival Wendy accuses her of doing the aweful acts, Becca doesn't even think to defend herself and tell her that she's been getting the same threats. The fact that the people she did tell, her closest friends, didn't really believe her irks me too. It was obvious they didn't since everytime something happened it was deemed a coincident, when they'd all read proof that it wasn't.
Despite the stories flaws, I really enjoyed it. I'm a huge fan of the almighty murder mystery and this one had m guessing until almost the end. I think this was the longest it ever took me to figure out whodunit!.
Even with the errors, and the weak main character, I look forward to reading Demon and Hyde.
I give this book 4 of 5 paws
