I loved the concept of this book and I think it was well written. The little snippets of newspaper articles, letters, etc. at the end of each chapter made the plot more interesting and made you felt more impressed in the story. 

The being said the plot was kind of predictable and despite her main trait being dislikable the main character was very likable. I wish there was more time spent at the beginning getting to know the main 5 characters and their life pre-adventure. 

It was also really disappointing that the lesbian character was the least written about/important to the plot. When they mentioned it I was excited to learn more about her and then she’s just barely mentioned again especially when compared to the other 4.
