Although Residencd Desirable Residence is a quick read, it just isn’t as satisfying as I had originally hoped it would be. Martin’s Press Release Date: Fourteen year-old Alice was particularly well-drawn; the pain of her adolescent experience reached off the page to grab me.

Daarnaast vond ik het einde een beetje tegenvallen, maar dat kwam omdat het een super erg open einde was. Gemma Townley is her sister. I dont want to sleep, so I asked her whether I can read her book.
