This story just dragge...

This story just dragged for me, plodding until the last couple of chapters. Peasprout really is unattractively self-centered, not bothering to learn the names of fellow students she doesn't see as competition and while knowing her survival is on the line is deficient in observational and listening skills. Of course it turns around, but more mechanically than credibly.
