I'm the type to judge a book by it's cover so the mysterious cover is what caught my attention. When I read the synopsis, it really grabbed my attention. I could tell that the book would be filled with suspense. I've also heard a lot about her other books including "Cryers Cross"
I give his book a 7 out of 10
I think the book was very realistic and vivid. If you like books that keep you waiting for answers I would highly recommend this. Although, I didn't like how quickly it all went down in the end. It would have been nice to have an additional fifty pages added on to the end.
This book has one of the most surprising and sudden endings of any book I've ever read. It's as if there should be 100 more

We're like South America and Africa. Like two continents that exist far away from each other, so totally different from one another, but if you push them together, if you nestle Brazil up into the armpit of Nigeria, it all fits, like they were made for each other. Like one broke away from the other a long time ago, but now it's back
I like this passage because it really describes the situation of the entire book in just one paragraph and I thought it was very clever.
