I absolutely LOVED this book! However, be aware that there is a second book. I didn't know that when I picked the book up at a book sale, so I was kind of disappointed when I finished and didn't have the second book. The second book is called Rising Tides, so if you are a fast reader (like myself) you might want to have the second one on hand.
