I'm torn on this one! I think the story sounds really interesting but then the whole writing scandal revolving around the guy behind Pittacus Lore makes me not want to pick it up. I might cave though, my curiosity usually gets the better of me:)
I agree with you. I had the book on my goodreads to read list for a while. I had forgotten about it until I saw that there was going to be a movie coming out. I thought the movie looked interesting, so I wanted to read the book before I saw it. I didn't know anything about the writing scandal thing until right before I read the book a couple of weeks ago. I saw some other peoples' blogs who said they weren't going to read it cuz of the whole author thing.I still read it anyways. I liked it. I thought the movie was pretty good too.
