With palpable drama and delicious craft, Nova Ren Suma bursts onto the YA scene with the story that everyone will be talking about. (Synopsis provided by goodreads)
This is possibly one of the most beautiful books I have read this spring. The imagery that Suma weaves is beautiful. The story is captivating and the reader can really connect with the characters. The characters in this book are have a lot of depth, and the relationships between them are all very real.
Part of the beauty of the book is that is it has dark undertones. Because of the dark undertones, I don't think it's a book for everyone, but I really enjoyed it.
The book does have it's slow moments. Readers who enjoy ghost stories would would like this book.
