Great Holiday Read. I’m a 11 year old girl and a keen reader. I really like this book because its very fast paced and thrilling! I read this book in 2 sittings as i was so excited to see what happened next. I thought that some parts of the book were more realistic than others. I wasn’t convinced by the writing style as it seemed slightly unstructured. The brief version of the story is that Lauren [who is adopted] and her best friend Jam go away to find out Lauren’s past. They gradually fall in love but events…

Wow! What a book! A stunning and exciting book, I adored it!*The story line was beautiful, detailed yet thrilling.*The story gripped me and held tight; it was never boring!~Something small: I felt like the characters were a bit predictable and alike. But my deep connection to all of them never faltered! :D¬I’d say this book is 11+ or 12+. Perfect for teens and even adults, I think…P$: You don’t even need to read the sample, just buy it…

But that is what Lauren did. Of course, let’s remember that this book is for YAs….It really is a page turner. The paragraphs…
