  1. Hi Rachel. This is a nice succinct annotation. I would like a little bit more of a synopsis to decide if it is something I would like to read though. How did you come up with your read-a-likes?

  2. With the book being part of a series and the chapters short I tried not to give much away. Kira is the main character of the books and the books focus around her life. Trouble seems to find her. I used NovelList to help with read-alikes.

  3. This annotation gives me a nice, quick sense of what this book is about, and also helped me learn the names of a few other urban fiction authors. Thanks!

  4. Great annotation, albeit a bit on the short side. Full points.
