I really wanted to love this book, but I just couldn't get into it. Jackson jumps around so much, it made it hard for me to remember when he was, even with the date and time posted at the start of every chapter. I found myself constantly going back to see the date. Once I got past the halfway point, the real story emerged and it started to be an interesting read. Jackson became more of a person instead of a kid who can do an amazing trick. Holly was given depth instead of some girl Jackson can't stop swooning over [even though he doesn't even know why he likes her]. I just saw that there will be 2 more books, but I'm not sure if I'll read them. Tempest was good as a stand alone. Not everything needs a trilogy.
