She treats her mother as being of no account, dick hops, treats everything as a life stressor and makes a bad decision every day. She has no resilience just an increasing unwillingness to be nice. She slut shames and mocks people she doesn’t like, has unspoken desire for 3 guys and has friends she doesn’t deserve. This is readable yet things make no sense. Why does Zoey have so many super special powers? Why are vampires known to exist? Why are vampire teachers so inappropriate? How does this world work? Why do vampires have such stupid names?
This does not come to a dramatic crescendo. It all ends in a morass of wilful deception, ass pull plotting and stupidity. Zoey is not a charismatic enigma. This book has total disregard for an informed narrative. Zoey takes everything as a personal affront and just needs a kicking.
