I really wanted to like this book, and for half of it, I did. In the middle of the story though, something went terribly, terribly wrong and it was all downhill from there. Judging by the other reviews of this book, I'm not the only person to feel that way. The author took what was a reasonably likeable story and turned it into something fairly repugnant. How unfortunate. Don't let the cute little cover fool you!
