We start Four In The Morning Kathleen the protagonist, as she is moaning about her Mum lying to Josh Colby. Josh want's Kathleen to write a letter to a girl for him, but to pretend it's off him. She initially refuses, but after her Mum hears Kathleen's nickname, Elchubba, she puts Kathleen on a strict diet. Kathleen now agrees to write the letter in return for payment. We soon learn who josh wanted a letter written to and why. As the story progresses we learn more about Kathleen and her friends, but we also get to see a different side to Josh. Soon people are dying or missing and it all leads back to Kathleen. She must find out what is happening before it's too late.
Before starting Four In The Morning I had not read or heard about the author beforehand, so I did not know what to expect in the book. When I began reading I was pleasantly surprised and found myself enjoying the book more than I thought I did. Although there were some small parts that didn't grip me as much as the others I still found myself wanting to know what happens next.
When Rigel the skunk was introduced I loved him, he just appeared and talked and was a general pain but in a funny way.
Love the idea behind AKA's name and it made me chuckle. I may not like my middle name, but I am glad my parents decided on a sensible first name for me. During Four In The Morning Kathleen receives a shock during an argument with her mother, one that changes how she saw her entire life. It does explain a lot of things but I did feel sorry for her, having this discovery thrown at her in the heat of the moment rather than being sat down and told about it was not the best way to learn about it.
As the story progresses more things happen and while Kathleen was trying to discover what was going on, I was discovering along with her. As the story slowly comes to a conclusion we get to see the truth behind it all, and it was one I did not suspect.
I enjoyed reading about the world and characters Christi has created, and AKA will be stuck in my mind for a long time.
