liked it

** spoiler alert ** I enjoyed this book. I am only giving it 3 stars because the first half was really magical and just perfect - but the last half seemed forced (for me). I had such high hopes for really loving the whole thing and my enthusiasm was deflated by the time I finished. It kind of felt like the author struggled to find a way to resolve the problems of her plot. I wanted to be just a tiny bit more convinced about the passion of Marco & Celia's love that death/the disappearing thing truly seemed like the best option for them. And the Bailey character just suddenly being the solution to everything seemed random.

But those nit-picky things aside, I really liked the whole tone of the story - and the imagery was amazing and strange and beautiful.
