—-My Spoiler Free Review—-
In the beginning of the book I did have a little problem with the writing style, it was very confusing for me and it took me a while just to process what was happening. But by the end I did learn to really appreciate the beauty of the way E. Lockhart writes. It’s very poetic and I did enjoy it by the end of the book.
I really enjoyed the fairy tale variations, they were very creative and unique. Overall I’d probably give this book a four out of five stars. It was beautifully written and I enjoyed it, but I wasn’t in love with the characters like I wanted to be. I do recommend it and I agree with the people who have said it is best to go into this book without knowing anything about it. That’s why the synopsis is vague.
4 out of 5 stars

—-Thoughts On The End (SPOILERS!)—-
Wow. The ending. I was completely shocked! There were so many subtle hints of what had happened, like how no one would ever mentioned them, how they never went to supper with the family, how the Granddad called Candace Mirren. And a lot more, but still, I was completely surprised about the ending. Crying my eyes out, actually.
I’m honestly shocked I was bawling my eyes out since I wasn’t really in love with the characters. What were your thoughts on the ending? Did you cry?
Let’s be friends!
