Review:Lily says:
I was so excited when I saw I had two updates to read! Honestly, I wish I could read right to the end right now and still wish it wouldn't be over! You write so well and your characters aren't perfect, they aren't flawless, which makes them that much more lovable.

I also love the whole coming-of-age element. Seth isn't perfect but it's like she finding her way into the limelight. She gets to be the girl of the moment, the one that Ginny doesn't quite trust, which is realistic, but hopefully Seth will win her over spectacularly (although I'm guessing the events of the ending won't set her in a positive light especially with the mystery girl in the picture?) She gets a beautiful sounding necklace, (is this inspired by something real?!), wears a beautiful. red, Pinterest-worthy dress at a grand ball, and slips way on an adventure with a boy - this is the kind of memory every girl wants to have.

Seth is such an interesting protagonist, especially considering her atypical relationships with James and her family. I kind of love her grandfather - I get that he isn't perfect, but then again, no family is. James' family proves that also. The arranged marriage thing is ridiculous but from her grandfather's point of view, and with such a traditionalist background, it would be the normal thing. Not that I'm justifying it! Asher is completely the wrong fit. I just thought the clash of perspectives was interesting and I fully hope that she stays defiant. I hope that her grandfather would respect her for that. But who knows...I just can't wait to see what actually happens following this cliffhanger!

Anyway, sorry for the super long review but I thought you deserved it because it had been a while since I last wrote one and it was a great read! Thanks :)

Author's Response: You. Are. Super. Awesome.
That has to be said first :) Thank you so so much for this review! I absolutely LOVE long reviews so never ever appologize for that :).

It makes me really glad to hear that my characters are flawed and realistic... I want Seth to be stubborn and proud and complicated and afraid of losing control...Not perfect is actually what I'm going for and I'm so happy you feel like that :)

The necklace is indeed real - it belonged to my grandmother and was passed down to my mum, who now has it. When I was little I was convinced that the stone had magic powers.

Scratch the 'when I was little', I haven't given up hope yet ;)

And yes, the arranged marriage seems quite ridiculous, but to families like the Woodleys or Asher's family it's simply part of how the world works. They don't want to make Seth's life miserable on purpose (well, maybe her grandmother does) but they haven't thought about the possibility that Seth doesn't want to be part of that tradition... not until now, at least.

Thank you so so much again! YOur review made my day :) and I hope you'll be back for the next chapter!
