I agree with you. It started off good but the middle took forever! I kept thinking – okay, how about giving her the necklace now? And then she got the necklace and I didn’t get what it really did for her.
Once it got to the last quarter it was better. I like a little fantasy so I enjoyed it overall. I’m glad her brother survived and stuck by her. I’m very glad her step-mother is out of the picture. I’m also glad her Father got to stand by her side in the end. I felt that was a relationship that had potential to shine in the book but was kind of glazed over.
I liked it enough to move on to the second book. I’ve got it reserved at the library.
