This book hit me at an emotional spot; I cried, and laughed, and closed it with a happy sigh.
This is my third book by Nalani, and it's my favourite. A heartwarming story about a rich girl, who has everything that money can buy, but nothing the heart can give. She escapes the gilded cage, and reinvents herself... finding friends, found family, and love in the process.
Nalani does not shy away from exposing the brutality of life in her books. She does it with simple, empathetic words... and always says to the reader that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I particularly love her depiction of sibling relationships... I'm lucky I share an amazing relationship such as that with my sibling.
