One thing I loved about this book, is that it was not what I was expecting. There is so much to the story, so much back round, and freshness to the story that I read it quickly.The plot line of this book is what grabbed me. Here we have a girl who is thrown in a world full of secrets that she didn't know. And when all of them start spilling, she is determined to know why. Ms. Pfeffer did a great job in capturing the essence of a teenager wanting answers. I like that when I was reading this book that I was just as determined as the main character Willa, to know what happened.Through the pages, the reader discovers not only Willa growing into her self, but also coming to peace with the secrets.As you know, I love secrets. As the reader, you aren't given all the secrets at once. Which is good cause I loved the learn secrets pieces by piece. Ms. Pfeffer grabs the reader by droppings hints, then leads them to a whole other level. Having said that, these secrets aren't much enlightening, but bring more of a character to Willa and her mother. It gives these characters a great back round story of what their past was like and how they came to be. Ms. Pfeffer definitely gave her characters a uniqueness and a special shape.If you have not read this book you should. There isn't so much drama, but this book doesn't need that. The secrets the book harbors itself, the way Willa is, is a whole new discovery. As I read this, I enjoyed being in Willa shoes and fell in love with Ms. Pfeffer writing. I am looking forward to reading more of her works.
