This is one of the many books I received when I attended the ALA Conference in D.C., that amazing event where I received more books that my shelves could possibly hold. If it wasn’t for Dani from Perspective of a Writer, this book would still be stacked on the floor waiting to be read. She reached out asking if I’d be up for a buddy-read of it and, excited, I said of course.
Below is my review and also an extension of Dani and my discussion of the book. Basically, we swapped questions about the book and made a blog post of it. You can see Dani’s responses to my questions here.
Aster, the protector
Violet, the favorite
Tansy, the medic
Mallow, the fighter
Clementine, the catalyst
The country of Arketta calls them Good Luck Girls–they know their luck is anything but. Sold to a “welcome house” as children and branded with cursed markings. Trapped in a life they would never have chosen.
