I'm going to have to give this author a does of honesty that some other reviewers haven't seemed to have doled out yet, it has to do with the headline of this review....this book isn't ready for publication yet.
Once again an author has hit publish too soon. This is a good example of a book that has promise, but it seems to me that whoever proofread, told the author what they thought they wanted to hear. You see, this has an interesting premise to it, and the first couple of chapters are pretty well written....but then this story gets mired down in mundane everyday life, and that makes for dull reading. Add to that the problem with the author jumping around from past to present tense and I come to the conclusion that this author didn't hire a good copy editor at all. How do I know that? A good copy editor would have brought to the author's attention issues with the story and tense issues.
My suggestion is for the author to hire a good copy editor (don't use a friend or family member, use someone whose job it is to be honest and objective, someone who isn't worried about hurting the author's feelings) and tweak this story to make it more interesting and correct.
Sorry to be the negative Nellie in the bunch....but honesty is required here to help make this author better
