Many names, places, and dates have been changed to protect the guilty… and the innocent.
for an answer.
Amy’s Review: This book was wonderfully written. The minute I read the Prologue, I immediately connected with the author. I, too, could relate to her experience, and this made me want to keep reading. I am so glad I did. Martin brings a lot of humor and experience to this book, and the experiences are real. I can’t say this is a self-help book, it is filled with experiences that can help during even the most darkest of times in ones life. This book is about real relationships and the concepts of the relationship. Anyone will enjoy this book if they have been or are in a relationship, and seems like it is out of the norm. Besides, what’s normal anyway? I highly recommend reading this book from beginning to end, and then revisiting the chapters that you most relate to.
Amy’s Review: A crier. No, a crier whose tears are diamonds. This is a very interesting fantasy that is suited to the YA audience, but I thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Sabi is a powerful heroine in the story, and her journey just begins as she is a prisoner. This is an exciting story that will keep the reader engrossed in its powerful words. A unique plot and no hokey storylines. Great read.
