2.7 stars to The Conspiracy of Us

The Conspiracy of Us (Untitled, #1)

I'm sorry to say that this book did not live up to my expectations. I'm torn between giving it 2.5 to 3 stars. The idea of the book reminded me of the National Treasure movie, so it didn't seem very original to me. I felt that the characters were flat and weren't well defined. There wasn't any real character development. The story seemed rushed and disjointed. However, the author was adapt descriptive wise and provided a somewhat emotional pull. I think a good, hard visit with the editor and another draft round or two and this would be stellar.
