I guess this must have been a YA novel and it was too juvenile for me. I thought it might be like The Royal We. It was an intriguing concept which kept me interested for a little over a hundred pages but then I just got bored with the characters, the very jejune romances and conflicts, and the sheer predictability of it. Then, when I realized the author was going to spread this over more than one book when it was barely filling up one, I skipped through to the end. This one ended with a real cliffhanger. Nothing was resolved at all. And I predict the villain is going to be rehabilitated and find happiness in one of the follow-ups. I think this series would probably be fine for romance-minded teens, but I will not be reading anymore in the series.
