The Girl from the Sea by Shalini Boland ~ Fiction Book Review

I’d give the plot of this book an A, the execution a B-. Despite a fresh, original premise, the character’s internal dialogue was so repetitive at times that it was annoying. Even though most chapters ended with a tasty cliffhanger, … Continue reading
