Defiance by C.J. Redwine

The main character is incredibly childish girl named Rachel whose every move invokes anger, sadness, and feelings of ridiculousness. She is conniving and spends a lot of time worrying about herself, immediately followed by extreme pity parties of how her actions effect and hurt those around her. Defiance is the perfect word to describe this book in the series. Granted, some of the laws in the town are archaic and belittling to women, but she is arrogant and the author takes her rebellion and glorifies it without showing the quality of law and order. Then again, the whole time I listened to the book I felt like cheering her on and verbally slapping her. I'm still extremely early in the book but am already very annoyed with the girl. So, I'd say the writing is good. The author's writing invokes feeling and is addictive.

Part of me dislikes Rachel. I hope at some point in the book she grows up and realizes the consequences of her actions, she never sticks with a plan, and the need to think things through.
