What they're saying about it:
"I am HIGHLY impressed that this novel came from a 14 year old author, not only is the plot extremely expansive, with a mystery that totally kept me in suspense, but the characters are highly engaging, while being normal “teens” and the sweet love story, is adorable – love, the puppy dog love! Kieryn Nicolas is going places, this young lady is truly amazing, with a gift of story telling as well as the gift of characterization, I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!"
"She wove together an absurdly extravagant book. She made the book and its characters so real that the book practically rattled with emotions and you felt them too. It sometimes felt as if it was happening to you."
