I can see why everyone loves these books so much. I was hooked from the beginning of the book to the end. I really loved the narrative in this story, how it would go from Mac's p.o.v. to things she had written in her journal. The only thing I was bothered about was Mac's girly-girl-ness. I don't know how far that will take her, because sometimes she just SUCH a little princess. Usually I don't like characters like that, but there's something about her that I really do like. Now onto the next book!
