This was my first book by Sarah Addison Allen and I really enjoyed it. The story was well written and stressed the importance of timeless friendship, and taking risks to find your own personal road to happiness without worrying about the judgement of others. Its a story of coming into yourself, and learning to accept yourself just as you are. Although the book was not the fast paced type, there was an underlying mystery that became the base of the story and was slowly unraveled throughout the book. I would definitely like to read more from this author.
