The Token

A Breed Apart

Okay this book is rather hard to review for me. I've never had a book do such a thing like this. This book is great in the beginning. The lead character is amazing, and not a 'the back says I'm not perfect and I'm trying so hard to be normal when I'm really a Mary Sue' type of heroine. She is a very well balanced heroine that you can relate to which is what we all want in a heroine.

The only problem is that she does a complete turnaround in the second half. She becomes everything I hate in a heroine, and it makes no sense. There is something that happens that would affect her personality I believe, but not to this degree. With such a drastic change I would say it was almost like she had a multiple personality disorder and another personality had taken over. Thanks to such a drastic change in the heroine the second half of the book was ruined for me.

I can't really recommend this book. The first half is excellent, but the second half seems to take a dump on any excellence the first half had built.

Callie Michaels isn't pretty or popular, but her singing more than makes up for all she lacks. And as long as she focuses on what's really important, she can survive high school. But how can she focus with all the drama? Between her best friend's odd issues and a daily dose of weirdness from the social elite, she's starting to wonder if she's the only normal one around.
