I wanted to like this book, I really did. And it wasn't bad, it was just not exciting. Maybe not enough angst for me, I don't know. I LOVED LOVED The Sweet Gum Tree so I dropped my to be read list and started this by the same author, and then I stopped. It was a great start, great story line, but it was blah after that. Just didn't keep my attention, I guess. Still love Katherine Allred though. Not every story is for everyone.
