Ankh-Moorpark, a slum full of "colorful" characters on both sides of the law, occasionally at the same time. The teenaged heroine is feisty and capable, if a bit too perfect at times. The supporting characters are well done and interesting in their own right.
It's written in a journal format. But most of the book reads like a regular first person narrative, with a more diary like entry thrown in here and there.
I liked it well enough to continue on with the series.
Rating: 3/5 stars
