This wasn't as exciting as a lot of stories. It wasn't as emotionally powerful, or at least not in the same way, as a lot of stories but when I finished there was never any question or debate as to what I would rate it. It was exactly what it needed to be and I loved the characters and the writing. Gilly is alive and real and I miss her already.

Ashley Great review! And, I agree with you, for the most part. I thought this book was brilliant and so very well done.
