Liv Trager was so strong, in dealing with her mother, and grandmother dying, and not wanting to live with her father at all, and uprooting her life across the country, and starting an entirly new one
This is a reallly good book. I like Liv, and I can sorta relate to her. I haven't finished the book yet, but it's really good so far.
I totally love Liz and Spinuchi! This book was one of the greatest books I have read this year along with the books I have recommened below. I wouldn't put the book down for a minute. I got so lost in it that I couldn't hewar what my mother was yelling at me about. Tender is so great that I plan on reading it again after I finish reading Goblin Wood.
Ahh. This book was absoulutly amazing. I love it with a passion. This book was very well written. I read this book thinking it was going to be boring, and stupid, like the Wanderer, which was boring. But, on the flip side. It goes kind of slow, but it's still good. Olivia is the type of character that you fall in love with. It's really a self discovery kind of book. She realizes she's just like somebody very close to her, but hates. This book brings out the best in Hobbs.
This book drove me crazy within the first few pages because it was written in second person, so I didn't continue reading it. It sounds like a good story though.
