This one sat on my shelf for a long time before I read it. It fell into the "judge and dismiss by it's cover without remembering why I have it or looking up what it was actually about to realize I really did want to read it"...hole
This is totally a real thing.
Once I got over my wrongness and actually started reading - I seriously couldn't put it down.
Mystery, historical, coming of age, romance that packs a punch. Every element was spot on and even when I thought I knew what I was going on, I was still hooked into the story.
I was wrong btw - about what I thought was going on. I was very very wrong and it was pretty fantastic when I found out how wrong I was.
Also - 2nd person point of view. I love this.
YA historical fiction fans would love this book! Especially if you also like a really good mystery and stellar character development!
