Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
You know how you can have a love / hate relationship with a book? Welcome to Mercy Falls.
I can't stand Grace. She is a petty child who infuriated me at every turn. And while I don't hate Sam (I rather like him), he is hit by my wrath towards Grace as her partner in crime. I think as the parent of two high schoolers it hit too close to home for me. I am so glad Grace isn't my daughter.
But then we have Isabel and Cole. I just love them. And suddenly I am reduced from angry parent to moony-eyed teenager myself. Hey, I'm a mess of paradoxes. Sue me.
Overall 3 stars.
