I loved this book, and forgive the cliché, but it is a real page turner. I’ve read a lot of books in this genre, but what sets this book apart is the great story line and style. Each chapter alternates between the past and the present day,and the further you get into the book, the closer the chapters merge. By halfway I was dying to find out what happens to Alex and Jenny’s relationship. I’m glad I didn’t cheat, because the ending is …well, buy the book and find out. Other than that. Technically, it’s well written, and very easy to read. P.S. I also learnt a lot.
