Sharon @ Fictionally Inclined - Consider me intrigued! I absolutely adore that quote you included, and Dirty Dancing is a favorite of mine. I’d want to read this book on your words alone, but it sounds like it can definitely stand on its own feet. Definitely adding this one to my TBR list! I’ve been on a historical kick lately, but I’ll be picking this one up once I’m in a YA mood again.

Kristen Evey - Aw, this sounds so good! I love the 20s and that whole feeling/vibe of the times. Beautiful and sad at the same time. Love the cover of this one too. Will have to find it. Thanks for the review!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Your review is so, so beautiful. I feel like it does the book justice way more than anything I could ever say. I loved Griffin’s writing, and her setting, and Garnet too.

Em (Love YA Lit) - Wow! What a beautiful cover! I want to see this one in the flesh ASAP! (also for the record: google image search for “silhouette of a sparrow” is awesome) This is the first I’ve heard of this book, so thanks for bringing it to my attention! I’m curious if this book takes place anywhere near where I live – my area was historically a big summer lake resort hot spot a la Dirty Dancing.
