If you like fantasy/supernatural books, then this is the book for you. It is a mixture of reality and magic woven together in a little town where nothing new ever happens. It has love, adventure and even loss. It is a supernatural love story for all ages, that gives one the hope that love conquers all. You can't help but fall in love with these characters. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read something that, from the first page, is fast paced and incredibly hard to put down!
