Convince us to read the book: The description of the setting is great. Most of the book is set in a hidden city in Scotland that isn't very modern. I can picture it perfectly in my head without trying. The plot had a few cracks but was great over all. The characters have changed a bit because it has been between 2 and 6 months. They show very real and believable emotions.
Memorable or Forgettable: I love Scotland so much because I lived there for a year. The setting was just so accurate and beautiful.
Cover: love the cover because the girl on the cover is wearing a beautiful dress.
Age Range: 12 through 15
Quality: 5Q Hard to imagine a better book
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
Additional CommentsThis is the second book in the series
Annotation: Kenna hasn't even gotten over Duncan, but she thinks she has. When he shows up in her dressing room all the old feelings come rushing back. He asked her to go back to Doon because her best friend desperately needs her help. She makes her way back to Doon and finds things much worse than she thought.
