Blink & Caution was an interesting book. It was a good story, once you got past the fact that it was in the present tense. And as if that weren't bad enough, half of it was in the second person! The beginning was awful, but once I got used to the writing style, it definitely started to improve. There's a boy named Blink, who is referred to as you and who's real name is Brent. He walks into a hotel one day to steal people's leftover food for breakfast when he sees the CEO of a company walk out with three other men. People say he got kidnapped, but Blink knows that he went with the men under his own volition. Then there's Caution, as in Caution: Watch Your Step. Her real name is Kitty, and that is how she is referred to in most of the book. Kitty runs away from her drug dealer boyfriend named Merlin, and she is convinced that he can actually do magic. He goes away pretty quickly, and is not a major part of the book. They are both haunted by their past. Blink has left home because of a nasty stepfather. Kitty is almost suicidal over the death of her brother, and she is convinced that his death is her fault. They end up meeting, and they go off to see if they can make a whole lot of money somehow with the knowledge that the CEO's kidnapping is fake.
I'd give it a 3.2. It was ok; the writing style dragged it way down. It wasn't a book that I felt the need to keep on reading, but it was good. It also had a great ending. I like books that have a well written ending that is put together nicely and ties everything up. Well, most things, anyway. It was like a snickers bar. A nice chocolate covering, not the best taste, but it leaves you satisfied.
