Deadly Designs - Dale Mayer Although I originally gave this book three stars, I felt that I had to change it because I didn't really like it that much. It bothered me majorly how similar Storey and Eric's speech was even though he was supposedly more uptight because of the customs in his dimension. Neither of the two of them talked like most teenagers would instead they were both majorly uptight and spoke like they were just meeting instead of being boyfriend and girlfriend. The repeated use of "his/her gaze widened" also drove me a bit crazy. Not to mention the fact that Storey always seems to get pushed or pulled out of portals at inconvenient times in the two books in the series I've read so far. I wish there was a bit of a noticeable difference in ways things go badly for her
