New Favorite

This gem has joined the ranks of one of my favorite books. I gobbled it up in just a few days and am sad that it ended so quickly and I had to say goodbye to characters I just grew to love. The writing is incredibly charming and witty. I found myself giggling to myself all the time and having to go back to lines to share them with friends. Cassie can attest to my fits of giggles when trying to share one particularly cute/funny passage. The story is told through a series of letters between several characters, each with a distinct voice and dripping with personality - you just get into their magical little world and I loved it there. And it doesn't hurt that the main characters name is Juliet.

So, let me give thanks where thanks is due - Nathaniel's mom recommended this book to me. And thank goodness for that. Nathaniel - you better send your mom this link. And send her my warmest regards.
