Even though I normally can't stand paranormal or fantasy elements, I loved this book. The focus stays mainly on the relationship between Evie and Jack - who is the most gorgeous hero since ever.
I thought the narrator was excellent, too. She really mastered the French and Cajun accents, and did a good job of differentiating between characters without this intruding on the story.
My only complaint? The sequel isn't out yet!
What a fabulous and well-written story! I have discovered a wonderful new YA author.
Not just for teens, this story is funny, poignant and speaks deeply about the struggle of growing up with a depressed parent. I loved the true-to-life evocation of the teens, and the story-telling voice was spot-on. For anyone 13 and up, I would say.
(Great narrator, too!)
