This book started great. Rena was trying to understand a guy that was considered crazy - he used to have episodes in which he was screaming and banging the walls. I was dying to know the explanation to these episodes and to Wallace's extraordinary strength. The problem was that from the middle of the book on, the story started to drag... I felt like it was not going anywhere. Once in a while, something has happened, but it was mostly too out of the blue and hard to believe. I really wish the author would provide much more satisfying explanations.
Rena, the main character, was presented very well. I felt like I really got to know her, and that she was a good person. she was very brave, she wasn't afraid of anything and she didn't believe the rumors like everyone else. I also liked it that she excepted Wallace the way he was - psychic and all.
Wallace was a little too sophisticated and perfect-looking to sound real, but I liked him well enough. He was lot like Edward Callen from many aspects.
This book was set in a college, and I really loved it! College students are much more mature, and they do everything wild they want. It was very interesting for a change. I will definitely check out more college books.
