My Review: I’ve enjoyed quite a few of Moncado’s books and have yet to review them and so I am rectifying that now!
My Thoughts: This is my absolute favorite of the author’s books and I have read it several times. I love that it’s a realistic contemporary fairy-tale with a Christ-honoring romance. The shadows of worry, the love, and care between the characters, the ending are wonderfully woven together into this novella. There are more mature topics so I would suggest that if you are under 16/18 you have a trusted friend/parent read this before you. There is also some slight violence that is mostly under control and that was a slight spoiler. And a couple may have made a private bet. *smacks self on the forehead* *wishes to take back said spoiler* *is sad* *finishes review anyway*
