  1. Thanks for the reblog. I found this to be the amazing book! I couldn’t put it down, and then, it took me several days to process my feelings and what I wanted to say about it. Jo has a wonderful depth to her characters and insight into why people act as they do. I hope you read it.

    • Hi, mysm. Read it, I have–and reviewed it as well. Wanted to share this great book and its author once again and was delighted to find your post. Thanks for your post and for stopping to chat about Jo and her book with me. 🙂

  2. My favourite Jo Robinson book, by far. 🙂
