What is has going for it
I could just tell you that this was my first five star book of the year and leave it at that but I loved this book too much to not talk about it. First of all, how did I not know about this amazing author? Laura Ruby's writing...,guys, it's so beautiful and poetic. And then comes this wonderful story. It's mysterious and heart wrenching. The feels! This has it all, a hint of magic, with a side of romance topped with suspense. Argh! I guess I'm not going to talk about it too much after all. I don't want to give anything away. You just need to read this book!
Nothing is lacking but I will warn you this is more of an NA than a YA so there was a scene that was for more mature readers.
Yea or Nay?
Seriously? You're still on the fence? Read. This. Book!
