though being set in the 90ies - with L.A. burning...very well described, felt vivid and realistic to me.
Really interesting read! I enjoyed it, the characters were well fleshed out, I liked the kind of shy and smart Noah.
There is no love story in it, just a hint of an attraction - it is explained a bit in the end.
I hope for some nicer things to happen to Noah when the series is continued though...
