    On page 117I am regretting buying this book The main character is way too naive for my liking and I think it would ve worked better if the author made it in a little bit of an Alice in Wonderland style and made her 7 or 8, which is so muchbelievable The romantic aspect would only have to be slightly tweaked Why do authors purposely make their characters stupid Laurel is in no way a realistic 16 year old I haven t seen or maybe I haven t looked hard enough one bad review on Goodreads On page 117I am regretting buying this book The main character is way too naive for my liking and I think it would ve worked better if the author made it in a little bit of an Alice in Wonderland style and made her 7 or 8, which is so muchbelievable The romantic aspect would only have to be slightly tweaked Why do authors purposely make their characters stupid Laurel is in no way a realistic 16 y...

    This book is possibly my all time favorite This could be because it s subject is related to twins, which being a twin myself, I related to it fully But aside from that, it is well written and devels deep into fantasy which I love , while still being relatable It deals in pain, l...
