review 1: I thought this was a very intriguing and interesting story that really got you thinking about what is going to happen next. It was a great story line an I could never put the book down.

While the plot deals with supernatural elements, the main themes of the book are rooted in the reality of family relationships, and even readers who may not like fantasy books may enjoy this. Very enjoyable and quick.Nominated for the Sakura medal 2011 . less
