Why did I choose this book?
Have you ever heard the saying "Don't judge a book by looking at the cover"? For this particular book, that saying would not be accurate, because as I was walking the aisles of the Maitland Library looking for, pulling out and returning various books to the shelves, the title of this book caught my eye and so did the picture cover. As soon as I saw it I had a strong feeling it was the book for me.

As soon as I started reading it, I became so engaged in the story and the characters.
I now consider it one of my all time favorite books!
