Marisa de los Santos is a fresh, smart writer who captures my full attention. From characterization to plotline, you'll swear these stories are true--or at least wish they were.
I was skeptical about this first one for two reasons. First, it was on the bargain shelf. Second, I don't share the narrator's obsession with certain silver screen stars. Before long, though, I was hooked.
It was thrilling to see some of the same characters in this book as in the first. I rarely re-read books, but this one is going to join that group of titles I rely on to escape fully from my life, then return refreshed.
