I don't typically read YA, but am a sucker for modern day fairy tales. Imagine my surprise when I discovered this little gem. First and most importantly, the writing is top-notch. Too often a story with promise isn't executed well, but this isn't one of those books. Second, the book can be enjoyed by a teen and adult. I'm in my 30's and I LOVE THIS BOOK! Looking forward to the Ella's story and another look at Tilly and Jake Ryan (Swoon).
