"To be honest, the first half dragged for me. But once things started getting going, about half way through the book, I went from barely being able to focus on it, to suddenly not being able to put it down. It got GOOD. Made me cry at times, and made me make involuntary faces a lot. Lol. I was sucked in. I just wish she had maybe shortened the first half a bit, or gotten to the points more quickly..."
