really liked it
Read from April 06 to 18, 2012 , read count: 1

I thought this book had a good story to it, the ending was kind of the not so good point for me. I thought it was really sad ending for Someone like Alassandra. I felt her emotions throughout the book and her sadness with her loss of her family members. It was a good read.
