As I have already said, I had problems with this book at the beginning. Anna was not my type at all and although I understood why she is so control - freak, it just played on my nerves. There was too many talking, long, long sentences, so clever in its way that I just couldn't get through all the words and got to the point, I mean - plot.
Actually, the first half of the book was a little like this, but then it turned for the best. The unexpected trip to NY, all the adventures there and Anna getting things in a little easier way, it all made me like the book, like Anna actually in the end. Her foster sister/best friend Liv was the warmest character ever, and so patient, putting herself always on the last place but finally getting a life herself. Miles was not my typa at the beginning, but he was actually a brilliant character and a very good guy. I have expected Charisma to be a real witch but she was a nice person. The only person that I didn't like was Tom, oh my god, such a wimp, he was not behaving like a man but like a baby - boy.
Anyway, I really liked this book, even with all its writing - errors which made the reading not so easy (if instead of "of", "sue" instead of "sure" and the likes) - which is not, of course, the mistake of the author. And actually, I think the book wants to tell us that we should live and let live, and shows us that we can fight with the shadpws from the past as well.
