Hooked from page one, I found Cath's perspective of life and people both endearing and eccentric. Of course, I won't deny it was City's two-fold personality that glued my heavy-lidded eyes to the pages. I loved, loved, loved the significance of the tattoos, especially the final one [fill in this blank with the hollow thump of heartache]. My only irritation was the amount of inner monologue, swollen in places where I would've prefered communication. It takes a lot of convincing to use lack of communication as a tool for conflict. Still, I gushed over this story and will certainly read it again.
