I loved every part of this book. Summer's muteness was heartbreaking but it was endearing to see the ways she found to communicate. I thought her and Landon's friendship was touching. I found myself looking forward to scenes when they were together. And Gage.. YUMMY! LOVE HIM! Can't wait for the sequel!
Quite possibly the most disgusting book I've ever read. To have Canada act as World War II Nazi Germany if very offensive to me. The fact that the author goes out of her way to blatantly depict Canada as "the bad guy" and the American's as "the good guys" doesn't help.
This isn't about human slavery, it's about a badly written romance trying to be a fantasy novel. I realize that this is listed (now) under the "teens" category but I've read books for teens that are superior to this piece of cow dung.
