Review by: kaska on Oct. 12, 2010 :
Brilliant story!! Very well written. I love the way this novel starts with a letter that will come about again later on in the book after we've been introduced to all the characters. The storyline is so good that i often felt i was a fly on the wall to a true story. Each character feels very real & you soon become attatched to them, a sign of not just a great story teller but one who knows how to write in such a way that your emotions follow suit.
I couldnt put this down & found myself getting out of bed & walking around to keep awake so that i could read just one more page! Its not the first book i've read on smashwords but its first i've felt compelled to review.
Brilliantly written & a great story. Am going to look for more from this author. Cant believe this is a free ebook!
Highly Recommended. 5 stars
