I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was so captivated from the beginning to end that I read this in just two days. My poor chores felt so neglected :-(. I highly recommend this novel.

At the starting the book was really slow and and it gains the pace towards the end. The book is not having a good plot but the way of storytelling overcomes these faults.

So...I've got to admit that I loved this book..I barely read books that have to do with ordinary and every day things...I don't say that Frankie's life was ordinary but I prefer science fiction books and stuff like that.Frankie is an amazing and really brave character. I love the way she handles things and doesn't let anything break her.Alright,she actually broke in the end when they took Jasper but she was ready to give her life for her baby and that's amazing and really brave.I expected her to ...more

This book surprised me. I picked it up for a couple of bucks at Borders and really wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. It was well written, fast paced and had a great - and original - storyline.
