While I really liked the author's writing style there was just somethign about the story that didn;t quite leap at me as a five star read. I felt as though Annie went from being a woman-child to a woman all very quickly. I thought Alex fell in love with her a little quickly as well but overall I really enjoyed the story.
It was awful that that happened to Annie and her parents were to frightened to try and help her. Once Alex realizes that Annie isn't a dummy after all he does everything in his power to change her life and the changes are huge!
This is a new to me author and I look forward to trying some of her other work in the future.
