Patron Book Reviews

This book follows Rowen a teenage girl that has to work on a farm in order for her mom to pay for art school. Right after Rowen meets Jesse you know that they have that special connection. The complexity of Rowen and her personality kept me turning the pages. AS you continue to read the book it is clear that everything is not what it seems. The reason that this book didn't get 5 starts from me was because it was slightly predictable. That could just be my perspective from the nature of books i read. My question is: Why does the broken and insecure girl always have to open up to the guy she's attracted to? I'm waiting for the book where that girl opens up to a best friend, counselor, or platonic guy friend. Anyway, I enjoyed the sense of family on the farm Rowen worked on and how that allowed her to grow and become a better version of herself. This book revealed that sometimes getting out of our comfort zone is just what we need to be comfortable with our true selves.   Library's SWAN Online Catalog

This book was very well written, and had an interesting and mysterious plot, but was the right level of complexity so you weren't confused about what was going on, I'd definitely recommend others to read this.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog
