I think I'm becoming more of a bubblehead everyday.

I know sometimes things can get confusing with changes in POVs but they don't have to change every chapter, it could just be in certain parts. In some books different POVs are put in, in a way that wasn't so confusing and benefits the book.

I would have made Shai the main character.

I would have made Shay... a lot more important. It would still be inside Tally's head... Actually, I'd do POV switches like MI. So it's mostly Tally, sometimes Shay, and a few times Zane., David or Dr. Cable.

Yeah, MI had a good way of doing different POV's. And it would have been cool to give Shay a more central part.

Also, Zane wouldn't have died, there wouldn't've been a mind-rain (I'm sorry, but it made things lame) so Dr. Cable, Shay, Fausto, Ho and Tachs wouldn't've been "cured". There would've been another book (not Extras, something GOOD.) I think Shay might've died in the end, because I tend to kill off my favorite characters. But it wouldn't have been a death like Zane's. She would've died to save Tally, once they reached an understanding. Then... I dunno what with David... But Tally and Zane would have the beautiful ending they deserve.

That actually sounds pretty good. But, what would have happened to David?

I don't know. He would've vanished without a trace instead of Croy!

Yeah! And Maddy would be less... abraisive. And Dr. Cable would turn into a good guy ON HER OWN. No bogus cures.
