This is one I would have never picked up on my own--a complete surprise! I was enthralled right up until the end. Wecker has blended fairy tale and historical fiction into something so readable that it will appeal to a broad audience that might not c...more

I wouldn't say this was "gripping." It was mysterious and dark, and I finished it, but entirely forgettable. I can't imagine a teen picking this up or really finding this compelling enough to get to the end.

There was so much I loved about this book, and it hooked me right from the start. That being said, there were things I really hated as well, and that surprised me, given such a strong start. The two scandals seemed so highly inappropriate in both cas...more

If Bridget Jones were a dude, an intellectual asshole, living in Brooklyn, finding fault with every woman he meets. Fluffy book with fancy words, funny, insightful, but not a real thinking kind of novel. For all of us who have wondered, "what's going...more

Great mystery with a fantastic twist ending! I was entirely absorbed by the family, the descriptions of every spot on the island so thoroughly detailed. The best kind of summer book, perfect to devour on the beach or in a hammock, reading without int...more

Really good, but there could have been more! For once, a YA novel that I actually wished were longer. Each development in the story could have been more detailed-I loved the characters, the issues, the music scene. It's just over as soon as you reall...more
