Dread Nation - Justina Ireland

Still pretty slow for me. I like the letters that Jane writes to her mother. I even like that she has finally stopped being an ass to Katherine and that Katherine seems to have warmed up to her as well. Other than that, I just need this to pick up soon. I should not have to fight to keep myself invested in this book. I don't know why, I just keep going okay so Jane did so and so, and now Jane is flashbacking to her life with her mother before she was sent off to train. Oh here is Red Jack again.

 

Someone told me it picks up once Jane leaves school, so that's good news. I think the world building is interesting and I think Ireland is doing a good job with that, the flow is just an issue for me.
