takes them to safety at his fortress-like home.
And that’s just the first sign that Morgan and her brother have entered a hidden world filled with secrets…
Thoughts: This is a YA book that I thought I would give a try. Usually for me it is kind of touch and go on whether I like a particular YA novel. This one is one of those odd ones that have Young Adult teenager-ish characters that function in a adult-like manner, yet manage to have a maturity level that just is not caught up with their functioning level or storyline.
We have a seventeen year old dealing with mob-like characters and in witness protection….and I just couldn’t buy it. The story is told well, and I liked the author’s style of writing. I just couldn’t fathom a seventeen year old dealing with these very adult like problems and situations yet still being that immature, while also acting in a parental role. Likeable YA…but not one for me that crosses over into adult reading as well.
