Setting & Theme
The theme however is If you love something let it go. Because A finally realized he could never be with Rhiannon so he let her go. He made the body he was entrapped in fall in love with her because he felt that she deserved more than he could give her.
The setting made the story more intriguing because every time A switched bodies it would leave you wondering how far from Rhiannon he would be or who he would be that day. Also it would make you wonder if he would ever be the same person. The theme left you hanging because we never know what happened to A. You don't know if he still thinks about Rhiannon or if she ever really let him go.
Praise or Pan?
This book will make you look at love in a new way, it will leave your mind open along with your heart. The two main characters are Rhiannon and A or Andrew. They first meet when A inhabits Justin's body. Usually he has a set of rules to comply to, so he won't get attached to anyone because he knows that it's only temporary. However, once he meets Rhiannon he can't control how he feels. He doesn't know how to deal with it because he's never experienced emotion before. Their first journey begins at the beach. Rhiannon has no idea that her boyfriend isn't actually her boyfriend. Andrew can't help but to let his emotions take over, as time goes on the two make a trip to the beach. On the same note, he begins to ask her more and more questions, trying to get to know her the best he can. Like all of his transformations it must come to an end at midnight. However, this time A doesn't want anything to change he wants to stay where he is.
I would recommend this book because its very suspenseful and leaves you hanging. However there is a lot of mixed topics from love to violence and this will reach out to kids my age because it's not boring or too factual its just the right amount of romance and suspense
