I loved this book because it was so charming and well done. It was sweet without being too sweet and had enough conflict to carry the story without being too far-fetched or too easy to resolve. The characters were believable and lovable. Siena is closeted and fears coming out while Julia is out and proud but willing to hide for a while, giving Siena the time she needs… the question is, is Julia worth the risk? The story line was well thought out, written and described, making for a very enjoyable read. There were plenty of emotional scenes and I was really pulling for them to make it. The ending could not have been more perfect. This was a fun and fast story that is now in my To Be Read Again pile.
