Needs More Grit and Less Anger
on August 27, 2012
There was a lot about this story that I liked. I liked the idea of a girl hiding as a boy and finding love. I liked Trace, the lawman. I found her constant anger and fit-pitching annoying after a while. Anger isn't really that endearing or funny to me. I am glad, however, for the ending of the book. I had a bit of a problem with her description, being so small and short. I don't think enough was said to paint a good enough image early on to prevent her from becoming odd-sized in my imagination. I also liked that her father and Charlotte found love. That part was nice. Overall a good book, but not as gritty a western as I generally like.
