About the Author
I am Sarah Richards. Though to my parents, I am still Sarah Jo. I have lived at the Canadian border in Minnesota, in the bayous of Louisiana and on the rocky Atlantic coast of New England. I am a highly caffeinated home roasting coffee addict who attended the University of Minnesota to study graphic design, and scientific & technical writing. When I'm not writing, drawing or designing, I can be found roaming the woods near my house with my husband, son and Siberian Husky. Find me on Goodreads, Facebook and sarahjorichards.blogspot.com!

For a first book, the Author has done a wonderful job in developing their characters. The main protagonist is a 17 year old girl, but unlike many of this age group that readers encounter in their literature, this teenager is anything but full of angst. The situations that this character encounters, and the feelings these situations invoke in her are, by the use of a skilful hand brought to life on the page for the reader; many young women experience these same feelings and knowing this makes this character all the more three dimensional and believable. As we follow the main character through the novel, the reader can only be impressed by the ability in which the Author is able to catch the essence of what is like to be this age, whether male or female there is something that either gender will find likeable in them. Not limiting their writing skill to the development of the characters contained within this book’s pages, the Author extends these to the interactions between other characters and also into the mains family itself. It is almost as if the book is a biography rather than a piece of fiction.
A downside to this book, I found, was that it was a little slow for my liking and I’m not sure if this was intended to be the case and leave the reader wanting more. Locations were written well but, as I’ve not been to this part of the US yet, I can’t say whether or not they give a true reflection of life in this part of the country. I’m sure other readers who choose to pick this up, and live in MN may be able to judge this area of the book in a better light than I can.
This was a very good first novel, and I would highly recommend it to those readers who enjoy the’ coming of age’ genre. Not my favourite genre by any means, reading this book has made me want to read more in this Trilogy and by this Author.
