This book was full of surprises and the characters were extremely well developed. It did a great job at writing about real life with real descriptions.
Frances was probably my favorite character. She was complicated and adventurous but also pure in a surprising way.
In the end, it is really hard to choose because the book does a great job at telling each character's story from their point of view, and you really get to know them well. Kathleen and Frances and Rose and Lily maybe in that order haha.
The first half of the book I wasn't that into it, and I kept waiting for something to happen. After the first half LOTS happened and I was intrigued and moved in many ways - I even cried at one point. Worth the read. Intricately woven, and I can see why this book got such high reviews from Oprah and others.
I downloaded this because it was free, and it's in the genre I like to escape to - teen fantasy. It's basically a preview of an entire series, which is a good way to see if you would want to purchase the first book in the series. I found the descriptions intriguing and the storyline different than any I've read before, so it was worth it. I will probably check out the series at some point in the future.
