I was intrigued by the premise of Lifesaving for Beginners by Josie Lloyd and it started out well. I was a little daunted by the number of different stories I was presented with in the opening few chapters. I found it difficult to become involved with characters as each set-up section was fairly short. But, in the end, what really put me off the book was the fact that it was written in the present tense. Perhaps I had just read one too many such novel (and I really don't understand why this is such a popular trend), but I felt as though I were back in primary school reading a Janet and John book.
