I bought this book at an airport before a long plane ride because the book I'd brought with me wasn't holding my attention. This book did keep me absorbed for the whole ride, so it served its purpose, but I didn't like the end.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

I love how well this book is written, but have reservations about recommending it because it is so heartbreaking. I wish the author had created a more hopeful world. It was masterfully rendered but brace yourself for a dark reality.

One of the very best books I've read in the last few years. And it's one of the rare few that I'll read again. I cannot recommend this one highly enough.

Hi Lynn, I just saw this question from you and don't think I ever answered it. Reversible Skirt is available as an ebook in all the usual online booksellers: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Powells, Smashwords, etc. Thanks for your interest!
