The Dangerous Days of Daniel X - James Patterson, Michael Ledwidge I felt like I was a flat stone skipping over a lake. There was no depth in the characters.Someone close to him was killed, well that was sad.He got hurt physically, well ouch.The girl he liked turned out not to be who he thought, well that sucks.The continuity did not flow in any sort of direction. We jumped from one event to another. At one point it was like the authors said nothing has happened for a few pages, lets put in distructive cats.There were about six chapters near the end I did enjoy. That is why I gave it two stars.
