High and Dry by lton">Sarah Skilton
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
There was too much that felt coincidental or forced here. The extreme stratification of the school didn't resemble any school I've known, and the nicknames for each group? Very forced. Surely there'd be some inside jokes among them. As for the plot, there were times we were supposed to believe that Charlie is incredibly naive yet at others he's supposed to be savvy about the social stratification. The search for the flash drive felt forced, and the whole Ryder subplot was just added for drama and could have been left out.
