Starters (Starters, #1)

Starters (Starters, #1) - Lissa Price So-so

Interesting premise, but I wondered why Callie's father didn't make any financial provisions for her and her brother. He seemed to know what was coming. I'm also getting fatigued by love triangles, especially when they read like an afterthought. Still, I do want to know how it ends. Stylistically: workmanlike, easily parsed. Preferable to the incomprehensible and clumsy attempts at poetics of some others in this genre.
