it was a very nice book i liked the author from previous books i had read so i was trying some of her other books and she keeps true to her writing style which i always enjoy so this book was very good i have been kind of desperate for books to read and this one was slightly a bit to young for me but i still liked it and appreciated the effort the author put into it.  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog
