Pulling him into her world and steeling his heart. 

Blogger Review:
In truth, I didn't quiet like how the story goes, the story plot is confusing for me. I had decided to read this book out of knowing the author of the books is quiet a literary star now a days, so I tried reading this book for starters, but it seems like his writing doesn't have an impact on me, Also maybe because his writings are not my usual book genre, But anyway, the good thing about this book that I can think of is that it is certainly different from other books that I have read and that it is not a "Happily ever after ending" that's a good thing, it is more of a practical way of life. I was maybe confused with the character of Alaska Young being the complicated, mutiple personality like character in the story. Thus giving the overall story for me a so so... But hopefully other readers can enjoy this book, the whole idea of the story is quite unique actually.... Try reading it, others may have a different opinion about it,.,
