** spoiler alert ** Briony is a 17 year old with secrets. Ever since her now-deceased stepmother told her she was a witch, she has convinced herself that she caused the mental incapacitation of her twin sister. For this, she constantly focuses on self-hatred to get through life. Until, of course, a handsome stranger comes to town and unravels the mystery.

I was really looking forward to reading this book because of great reviews and coworkers' praises, but I didn't fully enjoy it. I wasn't sure if it was meant to be a mystery or not. I felt the entire story was obvious from the beginning and I knew exactly what was going to happen. I also thought that the characters weren't fully developed and that certain supernatural elements tended to blend together as a big blur.

It's an enjoyable read and I would recommend it to teens who love fantasy romance, but I wouldn't put it in my Top 10 of 2011...
