My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book took a bit of effort to stick with through the first half. That’s not to say it’s badly written, in fact I feel that the book is quite well written. For me the first half felt jerky and lacked that smooth flow that makes the read enjoyable. About half-way through, maybe a touch further, the story and characters started to feel more like they were part of a story with a solid plot. The style makes it feel a bit disjointed to me although I suspect this won’t be an issue for many readers. It’s more of a personal preference thing than any fault of the author. The topics covered, while vast, each receive proper attention and help drive the overall story. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion, which is my own and may or may not reflect your own.


Book loving single mother to a wonderful special needs child who fills my life with adventures, excitement, love and innocence.
