Jen moved the coffee table, which I’d thought wasn’t quite in its usual place, with one slippered foot to reveal a splotch of brilliant purple paint on her pale hardwood.

My Review:
Wow!  I have been sitting her trying to figure out what I was going to say about this book.  It is really hard to put into words how I felt while reading this book other than I could not put it down and didn’t want to see the end come.  Laura Krietzer did a wonderful job putting this story together.  There are parts that make you uncomfortable with the story line but then others that just touch on your emotions.  The book kept me guessing and I was never quite sure what the next page turn was going to bring.  I really don’t want to give any of this story away – so just go get this book when it launches in February!
I am so glad that I was given the opportunity to review this book by Obsidian Mountain Publishing as an advance “e-copy”. 
5/5 stars READ IT!
