Okay my review here will probably not do this book much justice! This novel is COMPLEX. It's got threads and threads of emotion and so much ...much. I cannot begin to describe how much this book just was awesome! It sucked me in and took hold of my mind for as long as there were words to read and pages to flip! It's about 352 pages of wonderfully flawed and emotionally powerful characters and story that makes you just delight in reading!
See I have this feeling that there are more in depth and more "wordy" reviews out there, but this
is what I want you to take from this review...This book was beautifully written and just plain gorgeous. I cannot begin to tell you guys how surprised I was by how much I really enjoyed it! It packs and oomph that you just have to read yourself to experience! I really do recommend it!
