2 1/2 really. The world was amazing. I could almost smell the jungle. Instalove. Morality lessons. Science that seemed more like magic. Plot holes (bruising and being worried someone will see the bruises, on the next page a medical exam, no bruising?). Characters fleshed out but unsympathetic. Dastardly parental tropes. But still a fast paced read with much to love in the writing itself.
