Lumikki Andersson is 17-years-old living on her own away from her parent’s hometown, leaving the past and all its demons behind. As senior in high school, all she wants to do is keep a low profile, graduate and leave.
But when she walks into a dark room and finds thousands of Euros stained with blood, she gets involved in a game she should have walked away from. Dirty cops, drug dealers and murder, Lumikki sees her composed world slipping away as she is faced to deal with not only current events but her past as well.
To say that this book didn’t peak my interest would be completely misleading. But to say that this was an amazing read is misleading as well.
Lumikki doesn’t want anything to do with anybody which tells me that her past is completely screwed up. She is a tough girl that knows so much about staying low key and out of sight that I was expecting such an amazing twist on her story. But nothing really came. Yes, it is explained why the way she is but it doesn’t explain why she’s the way she is.
Lumikki’s story is extremely lacking because it doesn’t explain her complications because trust me this girl is very complicated and I actually feel that she enjoys this complication. She does because there is truly no reason for her to be involved in this deadly game she has many opportunities to get out of it but kept going and going. Maybe she was bored or maybe she wanted to be the hero but whatever the case she wasn’t part of this until she made herself part of it.
The author added things in this book that seemed completely irrelevant. For instance, Lumikki’s “relationship” seemed forced . . . rephrased was forced since Lumikki barely had emotion to enjoy some ice cream.
Overall, the story was told pretty well. Character issues was the biggest flaw but it wasn’t a horrible story. The down time was really slack and apparently big time drug dealers aren’t as smart as they seem to be.
2 Pickles for an okay read. Hoping book two will be better.
