Review - Turned by Morgan Rice

Turned - Morgan Rice

I was done after the first horrendous paragraph, but I tried to stick with it to figure out how it got so many high ratings.  Rice's writing is at about a eighth grade level- an eighth grader in a poorly funded school district.  I threw in the towel when Rice couldn't even keep track of the protag's younger brother's age.  At first he was "14 going on 20", and then a few pages later he was 15.  

 

Combined with the piss poor grammar, the little details like that ruin a story... especially if there wasn't even a kernel of a decent tale there to begin with.
