Before I get too far into my review of this book I firstly want to say that I really enjoyed the story and read it fairly quickly. I have a few free weeks so am catching up on books on my kindle. I very often download free books, so am presuming that this was a freebie and I thank Eliot Peper for a good holiday read.
The protagonists are both strong characters and are students. Not having internet access I could not check at the time of reading to see if this book is classed as YA or not, but I felt that the language and the constant referral to James T-shirts was possibly aimed at YA readers. I don't know why I felt that the occasional swearing by Marra did not feel right, but it jarred a bit. The story is a bit like a coming if age, where Marra and James still act in a child like manner, but realise that others have a lot to offer them in their struggle to get their business started. Marra very often acted like a spoilt know it all brat, but I liked her spunk and determination even after lots of set backs. The story ends with a cliff hanger ( not my favourite endings), but it is done in a really good way, that should encourage readers to buy the next book ( as long as it does complete the story). I am not sure I will, not because I did not enjoy the book, because I did. It is well researched and the author clearly understands business and start ups. Personally I could not relate to the characters as they were young, but I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy easy read contemporary, mystery, business or YA. ( )
