I've read a couple of Adele Parks books and I was really looking forward to this one. Unfortunately I felt let down. I found a lot of the narrative unnecessary. I give up on books very rarely but I got halfway through and completely lost interest. I was skipping over a lot of the descriptive text as it seemed like the author was just filling space to meet her word count. The lack of speech started to bore me and as soon as I felt myself re-reading parts because I wasn't concentrating, I knew it was time to stop. It frustrates me as I hate not finishing books, but I felt the story was quite predictable and have guessed how it may end. Perhaps I will come back to it another time, but for now I have moved on to another book.The story was a good idea, and it won't put me off further books by Adele Parks, but this one I did feel disappointed by.
