4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable read., 2 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Ivy (Paperback)
I enjoyed this book way more than I expected too after I found it in my local library, I have only read a few historical novels but after this, The Luxe series and Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle trilogy I will certainly read more.
The story starts with Ivy as a young girl of around 5, she is living with her cousins after being orphaned and she gets spotted when out one day by a woman named Carroty Kate who lures Ivy and uses her to attract other young children who she then robs of there belongings.
We then go to Ivys teenage years where she has again been spotted by an artist named Oscar who wants to use her as his model for painting, it is Ivys red hair that always makes her stand out. Oscars mother is very jealous of Ivy as she was his previous muse and so she sets out to get rid of her, this is where the book becomes funny, the attempts she makes are hilairious.
There are so many twists and turns in this story and lots of other wonderful characters, I will have to check out more of Julie Hearns work.
