I'm sure you other readers will love this, so let me just give you a little laugh before I give you my review! The first line mentions a clown and the word sinister and I almost stopped reading. I have a fear of clowns so I was like NOPE NOPE NOPE! Not my favorite beginning to a book! I know! I know! Don't judge a book by its first line ;) HAHA It's ok! I wasn't going to stop reading, but this did give me a laugh, AFTER the fact.
Now after getting that off my chest (haha) this book was awesome. These books always put a smile on my face. They are full of drama and romance. They are real and down to earth. They are written in such a way that just grabs you. I always get emotional with these Juniper stories. The characters are so young, yet they face such hardships. This story, like the others before, was a emotional read that sucked me in. Abe is a character you meet in the other books, but this story really gave him more depth. Delphine is an awesome character and one I can relate too. She seems to be a bit scared at the beginning, in her new surroundings and when meeting new people and I'm the same way. I can't tell you how many times I've gave myself a good speech like she gives to herself. These two have such an awesome story. Just like the others I found myself sad, mad, and happy throughout the book.
This story was written well and was hard to put down. I loved it! Overall, this was another great book in an already awesome series!!!
