4.5 stars.

Totally delightful and charming. I am in love. I don't want to say any more because that wouldn't be fair to everyone else who doesn't have awesome libraries like mine that sometimes get things before they are released.

I will be buying this at some point soon.

9.0% "You know what's really freaking great about this? When the characters talk about New York, I can tell the author knows what she's talking about. Also, obviously not very far into it, but pretty well done so far."

37.0% "This is pretty delightful, and I seem to be getting into the action/intrigue parts of the plot. I can't decide if I want to read right through or savor it."

51.0% "I quoted, into my soup. "Excuse me, but no man is that patriotic." / "You've memorized it?" / "I told you, I wrote an essay on it in high school." I looked at him and smiled, a little ruefully. "I had to compare you to Wilfred Owen." / "How did I come out, in your estimation?" / "I think I stumped for Owen." (Oh my god you guys this is completely charming and delightful.)"
