I just read this book and think it was a great story. I loved it and think that it was a great story. I'm trying to read more books by this lady. she took me to all my hights I got mad, then I got sad, then I was shocked, then I was happy, and then It had me guessing about what has happen to everyone Thanks for the thrill and the adventure.
