Crane by Stacey Rourke

I somehow managed to win a print copy of Crane by Stacey Rourke. I generally don't win things, so this was pretty exciting for me. I also haven't been able to read much lately because Baby Volf is a little demanding, as most newborns are. However, I managed to finish this book in a few nights (bedtimes are so wonderful), and I was so impressed with this one that I decided to write a review and post it here. So here goes!

This is a fantastic twist on a classic story! Where most books are a little difficult to get into, this author pulls you straight in with humor and hooks you from Chapter 1!

Ireland, although the main character, is not even close to perfect, which keeps her likable. She's actually kind of a mess, which makes it extra fun to watch her grow throughout the story. She has to learn how to deal with what she's done while under the control of others while trying to figure out how to take control of her life again.

The switch between past and present was fascinating. In my opinion, it's difficult to do without losing interest, but this author pulled it off flawlessly. She gave away just enough to keep you satisfied with where the story is going but not so much that you know what's going to happen before it's all over.

My overall opinion? Buy this book. You'll thank me later.
