Rating: 3.5

My rating for this book is a 3.5 because of the beginning . This book failed to get my interest at the beginning and I believe the main reason was that it was not written to be interesting at the beginning.

Summary:

This is about three high school girls who are immune to an allergy caused by black plants. These black plants took over one day after it rained and now all three of the girls are racing to try and fix the allergies from the plants.
