I look forward to reading more from her. Kirby’s feelings seemed to be something that Giffin picked up from advice column’s or some other fluff area and didn’t seem to have any merrit.

I mean, as a human being with struggles I could relate to them on that level, but I come from a dirt-poor background and somehow seeing a character turn up her nose at earrings from Tiffany’s because she didn’t like the SHAPE of them kind of made me throw up in my mouth a little bit.

I was really looking forward to her new book and then i read it. And the next book that I picked up immediately grabbed my attention Under the Never Sky and I haven’t been able to put it down since then!
