Great fantasy, romance. Kate makes a bargain with the goblin king--she will marry him if he saves her sister. Kate must keep up her side of the bargain no matter how distasteful it seems.
A well written book, that reads quickly, just not quite my cup of tea.
If I could describe this book in one word... GAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Lou Bertignac is a 13 year old sophmore who doesn't really have any friends. She lives in France. One day she meets No, a homeless girl, and asks to interview her for her school project. Eventually she asks her parents to let No move in with them. Allow me to repeat myself: GAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Slow. Slow death... The writing drove me crazy. It is stilted and annoying and unclear. And I seriously wanted to go hit someone. But it was also alluring. I couldn't put it down. Lou irriated me. I wanted to smack No. And Lucas, the 17 year old sophmore, also made me mad. I couldn't figure out if he was hitting on the 13 year old or just felt bad for her. It was just a weird, depressing, disturbing book. The French people, culture...characters, drove me crazy. In some ways it was a unique and interesting. But I also have the urge to go scrub my brain. Several f-bombs and general swearing. Ugh. I'm so glad to be done with it.
