I really wanted to like this book. Elizabeth Scott is a skilled young adult author, and I normally enjoy her stories. But every once in a while, there is one that doesn’t quite meet the mark it seems to have been aiming for, and I think this is one of them.
The second episode of My So-Called Life didn’t feel like the second episode of a new series. Maybe because the first episode did such a good job at setting up Angela Chase’s world, by episode two the viewer already feels pretty settled in, and invested in the characters.
