The characters in this novel are quite annoying. They aren't so bad in the exposition of this novel, because you can tell that the Skyes are a very close family who will have each other's backs no matter what. I think they were fantastic, good-hearted people until Indigo received the money. For instance, her boyfriend Trevor and her brother Severin keep taking the money for their own instead of asking Indigo first. Also, Indigo doesn't seem to want to negotiate with anyone about how to use the money. By the ending, she is a very unpleasant character to read about. It was mostly little things that started to irritate me at the end, but it made all the difference in my opinion of this novel.
The writing of this book is actually pretty well executed. There is a lot of description, and I felt like I could connect with Indigo, even if I didn't agree with her viewpoints. Caletti has a fantastic way of describing certain feelings that we all have experienced before but have never been able to put into words. For a while as I was reading the book, it seemed like it was leading toward a clear message at the end, but instead of making sense, the theme ended up being confusing and not relatable.
Overall, The Fortunes of Indigo Skye is simply not worth the time it takes to read it. It is boring, flat, and it simply does not have anything that I could take away from it. It is completely and utterly forgettable.
