Romance:At several times Piper or Jason will want to kiss the other or hold them and Piper leans on him a couple times.Or sleeps on his lap.

Rating & Age:5 out of5 stars and 14 up.



  1. Sounds like a nice book :)

    Haha, I can so relate to reading a 550-page book in 12 hours. I haven't done that before, but I've been known to devour books in a matter of a week or so.

  2. Interesting.
    I've read Rick Riordan's series "Percy Jackson."
    I really liked that series. Have you read it?


If you have book news or anything!
I'd love to hear about it =)
