This started out really well. Then the heroine started making decisions for everyone else, thinking she knew best, and it all went downhill. I'm not a fan of the self-sacrificing plot and the heroine takes that to an extreme here. The plot with the her brother was ridiculous and silly. What saved the book was the hero. He was angry and a little EMO at times, but he was real about it. He didn't pretend everything was well or shy away from things because they were hard or scary. He was a well rounded character and made the story worth reading.
