The first portion of this novel immediately caught the reader’s attention. It was well-written, then began to drag, spending too much time on the same topic, causing the storyline to feel slightly repetitious. The story idea was good, the characters developed well, and parts of it were emotional.
The Title and Book Cover were okay but not great.
*I give this a Three Stars rating.
This book was gifted to me, but I am not asked to give a positive review, only an honest review, of which I have given.
