“[A] can’t-put-it-down crime thriller… constantly interesting and suspenseful.” - Kirkus Reviews
I’ve never read another of Henry’s books the way she wrote doesn't remind of any other books I’ve ever read. Henry was very good with her dialogue and describing everything. She put a perfect image in my head while i was reading.
“All the while, she kept up a steady stroking with her other hand, tracing the shape of his head. Duke, with his short, flat, fur felt nothing like Phantom, yet it was as if Phantom was with her now” (163)
If I was a little kid I always thought there were things I couldn’t do because they seemed almost impossible or too difficult. In this book her feelings felt the same way and eventually she tried and accomplished a lot even though she was blind.
