it was amazing

*Disclaimer: I read several early drafts of this book. My review below is of the published version.

Stayed up late two nights in a row reading this beautifully written page-turner. Love the twist on history, the updating of the setting and circumstances, the well-crafted storytelling.

My only "negative" (and this in no way takes away from my 5-star rating) is that I wasn't ready to let these characters go. I wanted more time with Emmott (great life-experience-driven development from angsty teen who just wants to escape to compassionate adult), Aiden (Yum. Anyone else casting the movie in their imaginations? Hope there is one!), and the quirky small village neighbors.
