This book had some good bits -- most definitely earned a 3-star review. I loved the idea of the notebook that brought the characters together. There are good surprises and disappointing surprises as the people who write in the notebook connect with each other and work on the challenges they had written about. So, it starts with Julian, then Monica, Hazard, Riley, Alice, and Lizzie take their turns. Where the project starts to fall apart is this -- the first person doesn't in theory get to read any of the other letters. So, to get the most information you have to be at the end of the chain, but then you might not actually know all of the others in the book. Anyway, I could turn my brain into a pretzel over this issue. Unfortunately, I don't care about it that much.
