She befriends Griffin who kidnapped her and opens up a world that he didn't know existed. As it comes down to the exchange, Cheyenne realizes that just handing her over is not what is going to happen. She can't rely on Griffin so who can she rely on?
This is a short but enjoyable YA book. The author writes in the way I remembered YA books used to be written (before we had the moniker, YA). So, I would probably go as far to say that the MG crowd would enjoy this book as well. Cheyenne is a capable and strong character and one I think is great for the YA crowd. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a strong heroine. I give this book 4 stars.
I was given this book through the Goodreads First Reads program and MacMillan. No compensation for my review was given.
