Read from March 09 to 11, 2010

After rescuing a five-year-old Henry from the streets of San Fransisco, Catherine's father raises the pair together like brother and sister. Always the best of friends, their feelings for one another have grown deeper, but before they can express them, tragedy strikes and everything changes.

This dark retelling of the classic "Wuthering Heights" will have definite appeal to teens. It is dark and tragic, and a fast-paced read. My only problem with the book was a bit too much repitition in the alternating points of view. It drives me nuts when passages of dialogue are repeated word-for-word. Overall though, it's worth reading and is an excellent mirror of the original.
