Loved everything about Strung. I was never a huge fan of the original Pinocchio but I thought the placement of the character names from Disney's version in this was very clever. Penny was really relatable as a main character, even being not fully human. Loved the romantic story line and twists and especially enjoyed Penny and Chloe's friendship and bond over Korean dramas! I could read another whole book about what happens next to these guys!
I recently purchased this book at a reader fest. The cover immediately caught my eye. I love it! The fact that it was a retelling of Pinocchio, with a girl as the lead, grabbed my interest. I found it to be an interesting twist on a somewhat familiar childhood story. Roberts’s tale is nicely detailed, making scenes easy to visualize. I loved the musical angle throughout the book, as well. There are some minor editing issues, but they don’t detract from the overall enjoyment of the story.
