Not sure what my Mom was flipping out about this series being so amazing. It was just meh to me. Interesting enough to keep going, but I'm not sure if I will be continuing. Although I may just continue since the books are short and I want to find out why my Mom is so gaga about this series :)
The romance between Claire and Shane is very unbelievable to me, and being inside this 16 year old's head is weird when she's getting all hot over this guy for no reason other than his looks. And I just can't imagine him being into her since he seemed to be associating her with his dead sister. Also I don't believe that Claire has feelings for Shane other than looks since she was also so taken with Michael's looks and she just kept talking about how both guys are so good looking all the time, but not much about their personalities.
