OMG, what a great read this book is. This is my first book by Leesa Bow and I am so happy to have found this great Australian author on the Facebook event site. After reading so many American authors I found it so refreshing and entertaining to read a story set in Australia, my home country. I loved the Aussie lingo and references. The author’s style of writing is very good, her description of her characters made you feel so much of their emotions. There was only one plot moment that I knew was going to happen other than that she kept me guessing about what was going to happen next. It is full of up’s and down’s, twists and turns that will keep you wanting more of these characters.
