Read in December, 2010

While I found the writing lyrical (almost overly so, to the point of being distracting actually) it was a little short on personality for the main character. I felt like she was a very "insert yourself here" character. I did not understand why this boy who was so amazingly awesomely gorgeous and fantastic would seek her out. I also was seriously annoyed by yet another teen girl using Wuthering Heights as a model for romantic love. W.H. is possibly the single WORST example of romantic love I can think of outside of Twilight. I also wondered if the sister hadn't died what would have ever gotten them main character to grow up and come into her own. Kirkus is right, this book is a good effort that gets lost in its own emo.
