    "Amazing!!"

    When my mom first told me to listen to this book i thouht, this is going to be another boring adult book. So i postponed reading it until i had read everything else. That turned out to be a huge mistake, because after reading this book i went ammidiatly to audible to find out if she had written anythin else.


    This book contains everything you could want in a book, mystery, romance, action, suspense, and family. It is written so well you feel connected to Lucy and her feelings in a way you dont with other books. And as for the reader i think she was just perfect. She had to read for a boy as well and she did an amazing job. I hope she read more books so i can buy them as well.

    Story
    "Beautiful, modern fairy tale"

    I relished listening to his tale from start to finish. For me, there was the perfect balance of conflict, but it wasn't too stressful a listen. The story arc was relatively straightforward, but there wasn't a sense of plodding or page filler. The story flowed well. Even though the conclusion could be guessed pretty easily, it was still a bit of a nail biter till the plot-climax. As a reader/listener, I felt invested in the characters, and that they were real and three-dimensional. Definitely getting the sequel.
