it was amazing
Read from October 24 to 26, 2011

I had trouble putting this book down, it was that good. It's not the type of book I am used to reading as it is more mystery than chick-lit, but it had enough humour, angst and relationship drama to keep me invested in not only the mystery but the characters. Rose was a great character - after spending 24 years a slave to her abusive mother, she had an amazing passion to make up for lost time, hence the 28 and a half wishes. Her relationship with her older sister Violet had me choked up several times and I related to it on a personal level. The love story between Rose and Joe had me on the edge of my seat, guessing along with Rose whether Joe was true-blue or just too good to be true. And I found myself trying to solve the mystery. The only thing about this novel that got on my nerves was the over-use of the phrase "crappy doodles."
