I read a lot of dark depressing books, so this was refreshing. I wanted to love it but I didn't. It was very well written and the characters likeable, but it just didn't have enough meat to keep me riveted. I suppose it's healthy for me to read something like this now and again. If you like a happy pleasant story, read this!
