I wrote the previous review last evening. I've now finished the book after going at it in one sitting. I enjoyed it much more after the background story was established. It was absorbing and surprising. In the end, the only disappointment was the failure to give Veruca her due! I will be looking for more of Ms. Ahern's books to read.

I have not finished the book yet and I admit I find it slow going. I am hoping the pace picks up once the exposition is established. I realize that I may not be the target age group for this, but I am a believer in the idea that a good story is a good story for all. I do have to say that I am enormously disappointed that neither the author nor anyone involved in editing realized the mistake that was made when Tamara compared herself to Violet Beauregarde in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, because, of course, she really was behaving like Veruca Salt - " I want it NOW." I hope this correction is made in future printings. For now, I am heading back to keep reading.

I absolutely LOVED this book, so much suspense towards the ending! I couldn't put this book down once I started, during my breaks from studying for exams I start reading your magnificent book. Well done once again! But may I ask, could you possibly do a sequel? I almost cried *got too emotional* when I finished it, it's too good to not have a second book, please? Thank you for your time <3
