The Name of the Star (Shades of London Series #1)

The Name of the Star - Maureen Johnson I MIGHT try to read this one at another time. No, thats a lie, I won't be picking this back up. I tried I really really tried, but I just couldn't get past Rory (our MC/heroine). In fact, thanks to Rory I only made it about 60 pages in.But Octavia, if you only made it 60 pages in how can you judge it?!!?! What a great question my friends, I can judge it because those 60 pages seriously rubbed me the wrong way. I live in Cleveland, OH, so technically I'm what my cousins would call a "Northerner" but believe me when I say I am a southern girl to the core, and I was actually aggravated by the way Johnson made Rory sound. I may be overreacting, but I just didn't understand why she sounded like a dumb hillbilly.
