Short and Free

This seemed to me to have the feel of a YA girl story. I did not hate it or love it. It did not encourage me to buy the full length novel. If you are interested it is free and it is short.

I want more from this author!

This story is interesting. How often is that actually true? The characters, the setting, the descriptions, all interesting. I was motivated to go find Honeywell's blog where, as I hoped, she said her (first) book will be released soon. I will absolutely be giving it a try.
