Fun book for any pre-teen or teen. Has great suggestions and fun ideas for doing things you might not even want to or even have though of doing. Above board, doesn't suggest anything bad, risque or off-handed. Great book to get them thinking about all the possiblities they can do.

Not really my type of book, the writing style was good and the storyline was OK, like I said, just not my type of book.

Well, I am trying out new books and hoping to find one with the right balance of humor, romance, excitement and pace and this one fell short on a few of these.
It was a great story, I liked the main character, she was sassy, quick witted and had a great sense of humor but it just couldn't pull off the lag in the story.
I kept thinking if the author had shortened the story and took out all of the blah blah blah it would have been great.
Just too long a story.

This book shows the allure and downfalls of the desire for opium. Very interesting to read the strength of character that Anais had, she did the right thing in spite of the heartbreak it caused her and her secrets. This was a very well written story, showing the good and bad of having a relationship with someone who is addicted. Characters have depths to them and you are able feel their passions, pain, joy and humblings.

This book really helps in setting the tone and the reasons behind the advent season. If you have always wondered or even never heard of advent, this is a great book to help you understand and celebrate the season.

This book was a refreshing change from the simpering airheaded main H. She was bold, daring, outspoken and brash. I liked her. The same can be said about the main h too. Put both together and it was sparks every time they met. Storyline was very well done, lots of fun turns, tension and caring of others. I like the way secondary characters were used and will be featured in the rest of the series. Great read. Lots of fun.

This was a pleasant surprise for me, I usually don't read end of the world Sci-Fi type books. The story grabs your attention right from the beginning,characters are developed well and the pace is very intense. Multiply storylines going within the main thread makes for great tension, suspense and keeping your ideas going. Had to purchase the second book since this was a great read.

I really enjoyed this book, it had a wonderful storyline with a very strong woman who is making something of herself even in the worst of times. Makes you laugh out loud at her southern sass.
