Bookworm1858 - Reading about this story, I’m glad to know that there are moments of hope that keep the book from being too dark and overwhelming. Looking forward to checking this one out for myself!

Savannah - Wow! I’ve never heard of this book before, either. You seem really passionate about the book, and it’s definitely a unique plotline: the only thing that comes to mind in comparison, is the relationship between brothers in S.E.Hinton’s The Outsiders, and even that was an entirely different situation. Maybe I’ll have to put it on my “To-Read” list…

Alexa Y. - This is a book I had NO idea about before I read your review. And I must say – you make a pretty convincing case for why I should read it. I do love that it’s about siblings, first of all, and it’s always been a particular favorite situation of mine to see the older sibling loving and caring for the younger one (even if they’re in a crappy situation like this one). I’m intrigued!

Alexa Y. - I had no idea that this was set in London! That immediately makes me want to add it to my TBR list (which is happening… RIGHT… NOW!)

I really adore the fact that this book really involves Ted’s family, and not just Ted herself. The relationship between sisters is always fun to read about, and I think I’d enjoy reading about Ted and Ava 🙂

elena - I <3 models and think their appeal is that they're odd looking (Gemma Ward in her heyday looked like an alien) because it's more striking in editorials or runways. so Ted sounds like a good choice if she's tall and looks interesting! go Ted. it sounds like a v touching journey & you can definitely feel for Ted. also yay for London.
