Review:

I enjoyed this book and read it quiet quickly, Bart becomes a very complex and interesting character in this book. Its good to see him redeem himself towards the end of the book. The character of Joel works as a great villain he has a massive influence over Bart and is able to control his behaviour and thought processes, he pushes radical religious views onto him and forces him to push them onto his family. These views become problems within the family and causes many arguments. The problems with Cindy and Jory and Then with Melodie all add to the heat of the book. The book overall is very well written and add to the series in a positive and great way.
