Read in July, 2008

** spoiler alert ** I enjoyed the book, but I thought it could have been better in so far as it wasn't a page turner. You could figure out pretty easily that Elizabeth's character didn't actually die, but if you did believe that she died, it was great how there were so many suspects. I enjoyed the historical aspect of it, especially all the "girly" stuff, like the dresses, the dances, and the decor. I often had to look up certain words in the dictionary to see what they were (like the russian coffee pot that Henry uses in one scene) and I also liked the author's use of customs from that time (like how people presented their cards). Overall I think teen readers will enjoy it, if they enjoy the cliquey books as well as the historical stuff. I'm going to read the next one (Rumors), but it can wait a few months.

Erin Christmas Adriana-

One of my teen staff members thinks Rumors is way better than The Luxe. Much faster read!
