I can't even give this a star rating, because honestly, I don't know how I feel about it.The characters were interesting to me, and for the most part, Trixie didn't annoy me. I loved Jacob and I was rooting for them. Near the end, I did get annoyed with Trixie because I felt like (for her age) she was behaving like a first class baby. Which she admitted to, which I have to give her credit for because it worked out in the end... or so I thought.You know, I avoid reading reviews and summaries a lot of the time, but the summary for this one was a bit unavoidable. So let me say this: this is the last time I'll go into a novel thinking it's just a ploy to get me to read.Because what happens when I do that? I end up finishing a book in snotsobbing tears that are so bad I can't even breathe.Now that it's over, I'm angry and sad and disappointed at how this ended and I think it could have been even more powerful if Beatrice's fortune had been proven wrong. If she'd succeeded in her plans with Jacob and they'd made it to Memphis like they planned. To sum it up: this book was the build up to the perfect love story, seeing it grow and flourish and falter and then inevitably sticking each and every page of goodness in the shredder like it never even mattered.
