This book has been on my radar ever since I saw this gorgeous cover. I am not a fan of historical fiction in general, but for some reason I love YA historical fiction. BookishFirst hasn't let me down in that arena, exposing me to a couple of my favorite reads. I immediately took to Maria, and I can't wait to read more of her story. I'm not sure about Kostya yet, but time will tell! I can't wait to read more.
