⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

 

If you're the type of person that gets upset when a book you read has too many similarities to a  movie--this might not be the book for you.  Like for instance, the main character's nickname is Ghost because she has very pale skin and her hair is practically white...does that sound familiar???  They even name the 67 Shelby Gt500; Eleanor.  But, seriously what else could you name her?

 

Despite the similarities, I found this to be an entertaining and satisfying read.  A thrilling, yet brisk read that moves along just as fast as the cars they're stealing.   With characters you can root for and a mystery that will keep you guessing till the end.  You can really discern that this author knows about muscle cars and such.

 

⇝Sex Factor⇜ It's hinted at, and definitely implied at moments.  It's in no way explicit though.
