1. Never trust anyone.
Being able to read from Zane’s point of view really helped me see him as he is. It is never justified why one would want to be a part of the popular group in high school anyway. So reading about all the reasons Zane had to do it and why he was tired of all that is a definite plus point. I really came to admire Zane because of the way he handled his father and the tensions at home. It really seemed like he’d spontaneously combust with all the rage boiling up inside him!
“The trouble with rules, though, is that you’ll always be tempted to break one- for the right reasons, due to unavoidable circumstances, because it feels as if there’s no other choice. And once you break one, the rest seem like so much broken glass. The damage is already done.”
“It might have been my human side clamoring for blood, or my alien side looking for a chance to exercise strategic dominance over a lesser life form. Either way, I was going to win.”
Major plot twists, I always love the sound of that! It's great when the author surprises you 😀 I can't wait to read this book! I'm starting to really like Sci-Fi books 🙂

I actually wished The Rules had more of the science-fiction element rather than high school drama! I agree that there were some major plot twists that I definitely did not see coming, so that was a plus. The only thing I'm worried about is how the sequel will be like, since this one wrapped up pretty nicely…
I'm glad this worked out for you, Sana. 🙂
I love a good plot twist that I can't predict! I already have this on my TBR pile but after this review I may just have to move it up the list.
Oh, I've been looking for a good sci-fi book lately and this one sounds like it fits the bill! I especially would love to be surprised by a plot twist, since some of the ones I've been reading recently have been disappointing. I might have to give it a go! Great review 🙂
