The biggest thing to me is that this story relies too much on convenience. Rando conveniently has a crush on Rina and just happens to be carrying her picture around; the two are conveniently on the same bus that has an accident, Rina conveniently has an older twin sister who has run away from home… and it goes on. As a reader, I find myself having some issues with my “willing suspension of disbelief” when it comes to all of these convenient elements coming together in just the right way.
Readers who enjoy the humor that derives from this kind of a plot setup will probably find enjoyment in this series. However, after reading this volume of Pretty Face, both my daughter and I are in no hurry to read any more volumes of the series.
