This book was soooo good! I've never read anything from her before. I've heard great things about her, but I've never tried to read anything of hers. I could not put this book down! It was really really good. This is definitely one of my top books. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I've never read about a character quite like Elizabeth before. Born to a mother using an unknown donor so she would have a child that is extremely intelligent, a genius really, but her mom didn't love her, she just wanted to control every area of her life.
Being 16 y/o she finally rebels against her mom and soon finds her life in danger from the Russian mafia.
Very suspenseful and exciting along with a love story that warms your heart. Highly recommend!
