Arm Farm by Sarah Butland

2 Stars
It feels as f the author could have fleshed out the book a bit more no pun intended. The writing feels stilted and doesn't really grab my attention. The story is good, intriguing even. I think if Sarah cleared it up a bit, it would be gripping and emotional. I just have a hard time believing that a 21-year-old student would have so many liberties with cases and how they're handled. Not to mention her extremely erratic responses to everything. Her parents are simply mentioned in an interview (still don't understand why she was being interviewed, but whatever), and she faints. Then she gets kidnapped and it's no biggie?! Arm Farm has such potential, but falls way short.
