It’s rare that I don’t finish a book, but I made it about two-thirds of the way through this one before giving up. The premise sounds promising: A teacher in a prison school gets caught up in the illegal activities of a deadly gang. I expected the story to be fast-paced and intense.
Unfortunately, I struggled to stay interested in this book. The writing and the editing feel very amateurish. The characters lack personality, and I had a hard time understanding/believing the motivations for their actions. The story is slow and bogged down with meaningless details. I don’t need to know the scores of hockey games or how many times the dog went out to pee. I want something to happen.
This book just isn’t my thing. I couldn’t connect with the characters, and I don’t have enough patience for the sluggish plot.
