• I feel like I missed a lot of the elements in this book. I was very involved in JoJo and Kayla’s relationship and journey but feel like I didn’t pick up other connections. – Danica
• I couldn’t really get into this book. Didn’t really like the characters. Didn’t see a story to it. Then when Ritchie showed up, I was done. Finished it hoping there would be something interesting. There wasn’t. – Carrie
• The writing was beautifully descriptive. I really enjoyed the story, even though it veered too much in the surrealism for my personal taste. – Kerry
• I have been reading a lot more writing from the Mississippi Delta and there is a primal nature to it. So much pain and dysfunction; there were moments where it was bleak but the descriptive language was beautiful. I thought that the mythic energy and her use of karmic destiny was very interesting. – Chelsea
• I was moved by the writing. The character JoJo really spoke to me. I found my interest in the book wavering more than expected, but was motivated to finish. – Hillary
• For me, this book was not what I expected. I kept reading expecting the story to move to a better place, but never got there. It was very descriptive, in some instances too descriptive. All that said, I thought it was written very well. – Robyn
• I thought the book was very well written and I cared about the characters. I really liked the supernatural element that reminded me of Isabel Allende in the “regularness” of the supernatural. Very depressing, though. – Steph
• I did not think I would like this book but was pleasantly surprised. Most of it was enjoyable but the end kind of lost me. – Sarah
