    7. Due to Publisher's request, a review will be posted in February. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the chance to read this book!While I really enjoyed this book, it had a few let downs early on that prevented me from giving it five stars.

There were in fact so many that I forgot the main character's name, as well as her sister and [...]

Instead, they managed to get [...]
