Julia London just doesn't write a bad book. This one is a winner and I was pleased with Phoebe's story - I hate spoilers so I won't go into storyline. I just want to say it's worth buying. I read about a book a day and love it when I find one with characters that are memorable and well developed. Also, reading so much makes the really good books and good authors stand out, so I was quite pleased when I read this one. I liked these characters early on which makes me want to read the book without putting it down. I recommend reading all of London's books.
