One of the most amazing books I have ever read. Suspenseful, dark, complicated, and even heartbreaking. A very, very thought-provoking read.

I really, really enjoyed this book! I love how unique it was and I like the writing style! Absolutely love this book! XD

I started this because I found it on a list of fairy tale rewrites and someone suggested that it is a rewrite of Beauty and the Beast. It does share some similarities, but I am not sure if there are enough for that designation to be accurate. This book is emotionally complex and gut-wrenching.

This was a very good book. A bit slow in places and I found myself skimming over some parts but overall it was fantastic! I also loved the way the author chose to end the book.

A completely new perspective. Lucy Christopher takes you on a jourey. I felt so many emotions throughout reading this. A fabulous read.

I could not book this book down. Every page got better and better. This book is a great read. I would share this with other people. The book had a great turn out from my interpretations of it.

I don't recommend the book if you have really high expectations like me.This book didn't meet my expectations at all. When i picked it up it sounded so promising but reading it was a disappointment. The beginning was great but it was a downhill slope after that.The events weren't exciting nor were the characters as the story progressed. Emotions didn't 'leap' off the pages.The whole book seemed.... "unfinished" and dry ...if you catch my drift. It could've been better, that's for sure. In the end it was simply the "letter" gemma wrote TELLING us what happened, not a story one can get absorbed in and experience too. I think that was its downfall- in my opinion. :P

It was good but I felt like it was missing something. I loved (but hated, if you know what I mean) Ty and how hes so different, and I love the uncertainty that Gemma feels. It was a good book, definitely worth reading, but fell short and didn't meet my expectations.
