Review: First & Then by Emma Mills

23310751Short synopsis: When Devon’s cousin Foster comes to live with them, Devon’s life of reading Jane Austen and watching from the sidelines takes a turn.

Initial Thoughts: I thought it was cute, but at the end I was waiting for more.  It felt unfinished for some reason.

Characters: 4 – I lived Devon, and Foster!  Foster was so fun and adorable.

Plot: 2 –  I kept waiting for something to happen.  I mean yes, things happened in the story, but I never felt like the story reached it’s crescendo.

Originality: 3 – not very original, just a typical book about high school

Predictability: 2 – There was not a single surprise

Romance: 3 –  I didn’t really get it, any of it…

Overall: 3


A cute quick read with great characters, but lacked substance.
