To see full binge review click here.Meh.Yeah, if you haven t guest this is probably my least favorite out of the original one.It just felt a little out of place to me in terms of the rest of the series Honestly, in a lot of ways serial killers and psychic powers aside it felt like some of Cabot s lackluster standalones set n the midwest I really didn t like how popularity played a big part of this storyline.Yeah, popularity as a plot device rarely ever works for me in a YA book any.Grant it, Jess really doesn t have any desire to be popular.But there are themes of it there that just annoy me.The whole mystery plot is ridiculously easy to figure out I think I knew as soon as the villain was introduced and made his whole speech Captain Obvious much.The good news though is we finally see a couple of developments with the Jess and Rob relationship, concerning Jess and Rob s family One thing I will always give Cabot a big plus sign for is that in most of her books the main character s family plays a pretty big role.This series is no exception.I love how dimensional Jess s family is and how none of the members are merely cut out characters They all have their problems And I really love her depiction of Douglass, Jess s oldest brother It s not often we see a character in YA living with mental illness so I give her a plus for having him in here. Okay So that summary, taken right from the back cover of the book, makes it sound like Jess is trying really hard to get into the in crowd Um, no.This book picks up on the first day of school Jess is now a junior, and she s determined to make a good start She has a new wardrobe, and wants to have a new attitude aka loosing her anger management issues , and won t spend every day in detention Hopefully.That all changes as soon as she gets to homeroom.This book, I have to admit, was a little slow in parts Not enough that I considered putting it down, but it took over 100 pages to start getting into the plot I loved reading about Jess and her troubles I mean, being a psychic is a big responsibility And a bit of a hassle, when the FBI keeps stalking you , but knew from the back of the book someone else was going to be kidnapped I was looking forward to the plot picking up its pace, and got a bit impatient.I also have to say that I officially like Rob now In the first book, I wasn t sure if I did Now, I think he s a pretty cool dude.Safe House gets 5 5 stars Though it wasn t as face paced as I d have liked, it still had me hooked enough to deserve full credit Go check out this series Another excellent book in the series I just couldn t put it down, probably the fastest I ve ever read a book.The plot was enticing though the suspect was still a bit too obvious to me and I find it hard to have anything negative to say about Jess and Rob as characters Rob remains perfect, as usual Their romance is really developing at a pleasing rate Can t stop rooting for them Douglas is so adorable, really Getting a job was A character growth.Ruth unfortunately only continues to be and annoying as the series progresses I still can t comprehend their friendship at all Please grow on me All in all, and excellent 3rd book in the series Starting the fourth book immediately
