My 4-star Review
This book is definitely a whole different twist on the story of Crane. It's well-thought out. It's creatvie. It's inventive. It has your imagination going wild.
The ability to transition between present and past with this story is very well developed. The tranisitions were smooth and flowed throughout the entire book.
The extra twists to the story definitely give it an enchanting feel. Even when in the present, it almost feels like the past.
I loved the characters and their interactions with one another. They has good chemistry, which is all due to how well the book is written.
About Stacy Rourke
There is nothing worse than being put on the spot and asked to talk about yourself. For me it brings back that inevitable moment in a new school when the teacher would ask me to stand up, introduce myself and tell the class something about myself. I was always worried I would blurt out something stupid that I would get teased for. Something like, “My name’s Stacey and I like pickles!” Then for the rest of the school year I’d be known as the Pickle Girl and let’s be honest, no one wants that. So to avoid such a faux pas I will simply say that I love to write. It allows me to get my crazy out just enough that I can function as a normal member of society.
