Book evaluation- I really loved this book and the way its written. I would describe this book as a page turner, and a very nail bitter. (for me!) Cricket is a very independent person, and strong. I would recommend this book for anybody who likes a surprised ending and a very mysterious, romance.
quotes- "We didn't kiss," I said, Jules cocked an eyebrow. "We brushed lips." I love this quote because this explains how down to earth and shy she really is. " Maybe what couldn't be named was just as real as what could be. Maybe sometimes love existed in the spaces between. " This reminds me how she cant find her heart with the 2 guys she is talking too.
vocab words- an intense feeling of deep affection. extravagant-acking restraint in spending money or using resources. Smudged- cause (something) to become messily smeared by rubbing it.
