Rated 4.67/5 based on 3 reviews
She's cynical, sarcastic and is hiding a dark secret. He's a moron. A cute moron, but still a moron. When these two polar opposites collide, chaos and broken plates are sure to ensue. But from the shattered porcelain, can something else blossom as well? More

About Annmarie McQueen

Things I like: writing, reading, poetry, Starbucks, chocolate, anime, disney movies, weird music, dancing around the house when I'm alone, Glee, dogs, pretty dresses, nerd jokes, fruit puns, cute fluff, angst, Japan, red hair, some special people, the sun, life.

Things I don't like: Everything else.

I'm weird, I'm pratically asexual (yes I know this is strange considering I write romance), and I'm probably one of the most innocent and naive teenagers you will ever meet. If you ever feel like chatting, message me. People are awesome.

So yeah. Hi, it's nice to meet you :)

What a fantastic novel! I have often wondered why more people have not heard of her.

The prose is simple, succinct, but beautifully so. It flows with a kind of undercurrent of passion for the craft of writing. The main character is wonderfully cynical, often humorously so, but this MC has been crafted so perfectly, so well, there seem to be no gaps or inconsistencies in her character throughout the novel.

The interaction between the characters has been created masterfully. Annmarie writes with such precision for one so young - every word has been plucked and placed precisely. There is not a word out of place. She also writes with surprising experience of human relationships for someone who was only seventeen at the time of writing.

The book is sad and lovely at the same time and the character arc of the MC is quite astonishing, but completely believable. I won't give any spoilers, but the ending nearly had me in tears.

It is definitely a book to read alone and savoured. For a debut, it is simply fantastic and I can highly recommend it. Though primarily targeted at YA, I think adults will enjoy this as well, simply for the examples of human interaction that can be related to so many people.

This author holds promise of great things in the future. After finishing the book, I discovered that she has a new novel out soon, entitled `Imprint'. My response was that I didn't really want to wait. Her writing is rather addictive to read.

Superb read. Fantastic debut. Holds a promise of more and better to come.

Well written interesting, even perhaps exciting story written by a teenager for teenagers, revealing what comes as important in the developement of the adolescent physco. Enjoyed the language and the thrust of the characters. Good read.
