“It’s easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their presents and their pasts, but you’d be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often than not, it’s lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul. Never judge, learn to respect and acknowledge the feelings of another.” –Unknown”

Michelle Cornwell-Jordan Raine I enjoyed Becoming and I love Central more. I am reading it at this time.I love the characters, and I cannot wait to read more about Skye and Caleb in the third book, THAT should be a fun ride. Your books, too me, in my opinion, have the same poetic quality as the Twilight series, the description, the lyrical quality....lovely.
I have actually been looking forward to the end of the day, when I can get back to my Nook and Central:)
