    Review: Although compelling enough to finish, this book left a lot to be desired.

    The Fabulous: The underlying mystery about the books past, it’s owners and their story was very provoking. There were also some great quotes towards the beginning.

    The Flaws: This 16-year-old girl acts NOTHING like I did when I was 16. She is far too adult, not nearly as reactionary, or emotional. I understand that independence that might make her a little more worldly having grown up summering in Manhattan, but it would not mold a girl so astute or knowledgeable. I think the real story is about the Book. That’s the part that got most of my attention. I could care less what the current characters were doing, felt; what tragic things happened or were revealed. I was only interested in the Books’ story. There were also some “dream” sequences that I didn’t feel were a part of what this book wanted to be. They were necessary to further develop the plot but didn’t belong with today’s characters.

    Favorite Moments: Nothing really jumped out at me.

    Best line: Three good ones here, all written before page 23.

    “Even a book has it’s secrets.”

    “You never know where a secret will take you. It’s like playing hide-and-seek throughout history”

    “To know a book, you have to enter it.”
