From page one of this book, I was drawn to Brielle’s story. Shannon’s writing flows like poetry; her descriptions are detailed and her characters are well developed. I felt like I knew Brielle, and I could easily relate to her struggles and shortcomings. The first half of the book does have a Twilight-like tone to it, which I have to admit was a little distracting as I compared Shannon’s Brielle to Stephanie Meyers’ Bella. After the initial similarities, however, I was able to move on and get more into the story, seeing Brielle as her own character, and not merely a photocopy of Meyers’ creation.
