The way she struggles and how she gets stronger and stronger is really well-written. Bonus points for the slow building friendship and romance.

Everything is said. And the things that are said, made me tear up.
I really wanna go on a book shopping spree right now.
Sadly (in this case) there was plot, too.
Don’t get me wrong, they fit together and it was not bad, just… you know. Could have been more drama.
I vented a little on twitter about this novel, that should tell you enough.
The story is nicely paced and I enjoyed Eddie and Wish’s relationship very much.
I didn’t feel any connection between them and suddenly they are having sex.
But my most beloved character would be Zafir’s son Tariq. He is very kid-like and so enthusiastic, which makes him a fun and refreshing character.
This is my first book by Amy Jo Cousins, but I’m very sure it won’t be the last.
