Teenage TB patients are quarantined, not expecting to find love, friends, hope, or a normal future. However, each character learns to grow, mentally and emotionally. It’s a beautifully told story, each page bringing something new and special into the Young Adult Fiction genre. Be it the butter-beer lattes or risky trips to pick up loot in the woods from Michael, a Starbucks worker, these kids defy their illness, defy their fate, and ultimately, just mess things up. It’s amazing! It is hard indeed to say that this book is anything but phenomenal. For anyone who needs a hard cry, good laugh, or just a great way to spend your weekend, this books is the nook for you.

Ohhh Lordie!!! This book is filled with laughs and giggles, adventures and fun, royalty and hideous schemes. Edward is king…but he’s dying. His cousin, Jane, must marry to produce a successor. His sister Mary is in on the plot as well. His older sister Beth is the only one in the castle who hasn’t turned on Edward. Oh yeah, certain people can turn into animals. Jane is a *plot spoiler*, Edward is a *plot spoiler*, Grace is a *plot spoiler*. Follow their adventures for a good read. BTW, the plot thickens when you find out which plot Mary is a part of!
