The story follows both Echo and Noah’s points of view. It’s interesting the way she accomplishes this. She alternates the narrator by chapters. So one chapter you are in Echo’s head and the next is Noah’s. This could have been distracting if not written well but I feel like it enhanced the story!

The story takes place in the future where virtual reality is more like reality as most people spend their time in the virtual world of OASIS. Initially I was intrigued as it reminded me of the Bruce Willis movie Surrogates which I enjoyed, but this book was even better

I can’t really say much more about The Raft. I didn’t form a connection with the characters and I just felt like I knew how it was going to end before it got there. There were times that I was freakin’ out with Robie – especially with the sharks and being in the water.

I feel that’s something to be aware of when reading the book, but I’d say it’s what makes Marley seem like such an amazing character in the way he deals with life that I appreciate the honesty of the writing

I was super stoked to see if the second book of the Gallagher Girls Series would live up to the hype built in first book and I was not disappointed in the least! I loved the integration of the boys school into the world of Gallagher Academy and the girls’ daily lives.
