3 out of 5 stars
After finishing this book, I am not sure how I feel about it. Like
others have said, the book does start out pretty slow, and not until you
are halfway through the book you really get to finding out exactly what
this book is about. The book does have a lot of good Al Capone
references, which is interesting.
The book is about a girl who is
in High School. She gets excellent grades, but at the same time pretty
invisible to the rest of her class. Then, one day she is given the
chance, and two other of her class mates Lance and Dante, to take the
rest of the year off of school and intern at a luxurious hotel that is
about to reopen to the public. She is told an internship like that could
help her be seen and get into any college she wants, so she dutiful
accepts the position.
Once she is at the hotel, not everything is
what it seems. The people who work there are mysteriously beautiful but
at the same time a little different. There is a mysterious book, and
mysterious task. Everything slowly comes together as Haven and Lance try
to figure out what exactly is happening in this hotel.
the dialogue can be a bit cheesy, but the adventures in the end keep the
book entertaining. The end leaves you hanging for a second book.
is very much a young adult book. There is a romance in this book, very
slow going and cute. It is very unlike other books I have read recently.
The romance, and the storyline is very fresh and interesting. I didn't
love or hate this book it was an okay read.
