A big thanks to Clarion and Edelweiss for an ARC of this title. I did find the reality part of the plot to be fascinating and seeing the challenges and inside life of the house along with Jane's snarky commentary was quite entertaining. She played some really great pranks on the rest of the residents, too. Being a rule-follower myself, I must live vicariously through characters like Jane.

While this book does mention God quite frequently and the title of the book is a clear reference to the state of fallen man, I never see the God in John 3:16 and the Son is not even mentioned except in an expletive. I also found the language to be more graphic than my comfort level. For older teens, for sure.
