This book wasn't quite as gripping as I had hoped. It was interesting enough and it was rather fast paced but I just didn't get caught up in the book. I liked the grandparents of the main character Jessica more than her.
I read this book as part of the Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon.hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict.
