Read from May 10 to 23, 2012

** spoiler alert ** What started out as an amazing read ultimately left me a little disappointed.

The story itself is definitely smartly written. It will appeal to those looking for a love story, albeit twisted, as well as those looking for a mystery. There are twists and turns with every chapter, so it is hard to put down.

The characters are not overly developed, but what we do know of them is interesting. The story line is unique yet familiar.

I was not happy with the ending. I want to hear Lily's side of everything. She was such an integral part of the story, and I felt like I was left hanging.

On a side note, I am not a big fan of each chapter being told by a different person, and in different years, so I found myself oftentimes confused about whose head I was in and had to keep going back to see who the narrator was for that chapter.

I can totally see this book made into a movie.
