So I was reading the reviews and I noticed a lot of the reviewers mentioned the age thing between two character Lilly who is 13 going on 14 and Oliver who is 17. So I was like this may not be a book I want to read as I believe that is a huge age difference to have two characters be together.
As I started reading I am glad to say I am glad that it went a certain way with these two as I believe Lilly has a lot on her plate she doesn't need to be in a relationship right now.
Lilly doesn't have a happy life. She has a mother who isn't a loving mother and her father she doesn't seem him she is a sad child who has grown to adapt to her life. So when all of a sudden coming home from school no one is at home she is thrown into a place with a family she has never known before. Though they know of her which is always a good thing.
Lilly gets to get the love she has always needed and wanted but along with that she gets a family secret and the truth of what happened to her mother! Not the mother she thought lived with her.
This secret her family has is a big one but it is one that Lilly needs to know about because it will affect her as well!
I think this would be a good book for teens as everything is completely clean in here and the action is minimum, and it has a good mystery within the pages!
I really loved how Lilly's family from Canada opened their arms to her and made her feel at home.
Lilly is a well developed character, who grows in a good way especially when faced with the one person that has caused not only her but her family heartache.
I am excited to see where this story is going to go because it seems that book two will be about Lilly's best friend December Moon. Which I wonder how she will play a part as we get just a glimpse of her in this book.
