    A Historical Debut Written like a Pro!

    This book is action-packed. I read it in one day, which used to be normal for me but is now a bit of a rare occasion. First of all, this book takes place in the roaring 20s in Chicago. That alone has me intrigued. It features an girl who strains against the constraints of the expectations for woman at that time. While cliché, I didn’t mind it. As usual, Stephanie Morrill succeeded to draw me in with her excellent writing and enticing characters.This was Stephanie Morrill’s first attempt at historical fiction and mystery and I think she did wonderfully. The fast-paced plot kept me guessing until the very end. Each character was so complex and the world around them felt very real. I loved the exploration of the various mafias and the dark underbelly of a beloved American city. I think that, at least for me, mafias are rarely explored in YA and this definitely made the story stand out among the many books I’ve read. The romance in this was very sweet and very shippable. While it seemed strange that two of the major female characters both had two men keen on them, I am glad it didn’t turn into a full blown love triangle. This story was so twisty and every time I thought I knew how it would end Stephanie Morrill would throw a curveball my way. The relationships were all so complex, and you never really knew who to trust. Stephanie Morrill was born to write this kind of story and that showed in the complexity and originality of her story and her concise lyrical prose. She definitely knew what she was doing and I can’t wait to see what she does next. CONTENT GUIDE – Sexual – kissing, mentions of prostitutes, brothels, and affairs. Innuendos. Cussing – implied, once or twice (ex. he muttered an expletive) Violence – violence death, psychologically messed up person Drinking/drugs – some mild drinking

    A great book!

    The book was a total surprise. I’m not sure what I expected, but Lost Girl blew my ideas out of the water and pretty much amazed me. I was sucked into the world, intrigued by Piper’s point of view, and throughly enjoyed getting to know the characters better. And, on the subject of characters, let me talk about them for a bit… Piper – First of all, she has an incredible name, so cute. Second of all, I was pretty impressed with how very different she was from Stephanie’s other main characters. Piper was unique, experienced growth, and although I couldn’t always relate to her personally, I felt like I understood her. She was also very realistic, so yay! Lydia – Lydia is a rather uncommon name in books, so it was a little bit weird to be reading about one (since I share the name). I’ll have to say, the plot twists with her were a total surprise to me. I liked her character, she was a good balance for Piper. It makes sense that the two of them would be best friends. Walter – Goodness! I was caught between wishing the plot would go somewhere that it didn’t, and thinking YES! Finally, a book that gets it right! In the end, my happiness for the part Walter played in the story won out. I liked him a lot, and could relate to the relationship he had with the other characters quite well. There are obviously a lot more characters I could talk about, but those were my top three I felt like discussing. On to the plot…. It’s a mystery. I knew that, but somehow I sorta forgot that when I began reading the book (probably because the other books Stephanie has written aren’t mysteries). It didn’t take long for the mystery part to erupt though, and erupt it did. The pacing of the book was really well done. The plot had twists. The mystery was intriguing. Altogether it was a fantastic book, and one I’m looking forward to re-reading after I receive the hardback copy I bought. *I received this book from the author
