A fun fun read. One of my favorites and would appeal to a lot of teen girls. I loved the main character and all the secondary characters were awesome. Probably won't win but glad it was in the top 20.

I LOVED this book! What a great story for teen girls about empowered and independent women!! I don't see a lot of boy appeal here, but I'm glad I got a chance to read this book, and I'd adopt any one of the Gray Widows as my grandmother!!

I absolutely loved this book. But it is a really girly book. Will boys pick it up?
