Review: The first thing that attracted me to this book was the cover, it looks so glam. The second thing was after reading Emmy’s blog, she seemed like such a lovely person, providing tips and help to other self publishing authors. The third thing was the blurb. Fantastic! I read the first few chapters, and was hooked, I wanted to know what happened. The main character was so likeable and relatable, I even had to ask Emmy if much of it was non fiction. Her characters are described in depth, from their thoughts and mannerisms. The narrative voice was brilliant (told in the first person for the main chracter, and third person for the other characters.) I thought that I would find the switching of voices, and the amount of characters confusing however it never was. Emmy is skilled at giving all of her characters a unique individual personality. Her writing style is great and very descriptive. The ending was unexpected, (I won’t spoil it) however, I’m off to message Emmy for some more info. Great entertaining read.
