Wow! What a great start to a book! The writing is vivid and I can imagine myself as Filomena, whose backstory is revealed in little snippets. Filomena is walking to the bookstore by herself for the first time ever to purchase the last book in a favorite series. In this opening we hear her thoughts about the book, her parents, and school and get a great overview of the character. As an avid reader myself, I can feel the same urgency to read the newest book.
The Prologue was fascinating as well, with just enough suspense to keep the reader wondering what is going to happen, but giving enough details to set up the coming story.
I can't wait to read the whole story!
