Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!


I liked the way the book was written for the most part. It was clever, pacy and twisted around and it was not at all obvious as to who the mysterious other person was or what their motives were. 

The thing that stopped the flow, but just a bit was the other persons voice. This is confusing if the book is written in first person throughout. 

That said Cara was a fairly typical teen girl and her portrayal was very good and honest of how girls do act. I kind of liked her and her gutsy , sometimes sensitive and others not so, character. 

Overall, a very good read and it's well worth your time if you enjoy coming of age and mystery stories.

Katlyn Duncan was born and raised in a small town in western Massachusetts. Her overactive imagination involved invisible friends, wanting to be a Disney Princess and making up her own stories. Her bibliophile mom always encouraged her love of reading and that stayed with her ever since. Even though she works full time in the medical field Katlyn has always made time for books, whether she is reading or writing them. 

Katlyn now lives in southern Connecticut with her husband and adorable Wheaten Terrier and she is thrilled to finally share her stories with the world.
