We don't support any particular store or company, but do ask that you support your local brick and mortar store to keep them in business. If they don't have the book, most stores are more than happy to order it for you too! This gives their store the business and helps you get the book you want :)
What we thought:
Rebecca T.: I really enjoyed this book. The unique style won me over immediately, and I adored the quirky sense of humor that shone through so much of it. By combining first person narration from Bee's perspective with the e-mails, documents, and letters Semple weaves together a story that is filled with mystery, intrigue, humor, and just a touch of heartbreak that will keep you reading until the end. I did find the resolution a bit convenient and, like Jenn, slightly unfulfilling, but overall I thought this was a fun read.
