super great!

This book was incredible, it had a great story line and detail. There were some dark parts like when the girl drew Amari with x eyes and dead. Although that part is very quick and lasts only one sentince. Another intense time is when Amari goes to talk with Mourea and it a little scary but nothing I could not handle. Overall I love this book, So far I am at page 290 in just 3 days and it just sucks me in.
