Plot Summary:

.

Review:

I have not experienced what Lia Khan has been through but, her story can relate to so many people that became different but, accepted for what they have become now. Is I think a genius technique that the author of this book Robin Wasserman has proposed. The concept of relating the book to Deus Ex Machina is I think the best outline of this book. The characters are perfectly made- each character are unique and fits their role. Even though the book had a lot of inappropriate languages and explicit description, I still like the plot and the maturity of the story same as the setting. Rating: 4.5
