We love Kit...but this book just isn't working for us. We are going to put it down for now. The book is well written and the story line interesting enough - perhaps we are just not in the right mood right now. Read full review

I love this book! It has to be one of the best books ever! I've only read a little bit, but I can tell it's going to be good. I got it for my birthday yesterday. Highly recommended. Buy it! Love it! Read full review
