The Amaranth Enchantment
by Julie Berry
A decent, entertaining read, but not as fabulous as I had hoped. There just wasn't enough back story to reel me in and actually care about the main character, Lucinda. And Beryl's "I come from another world" angle was shallow as well. Oh, and I could not stand Peter. I hated his whole character. So, of course, I despised the ending in relation to Peter.
And I'm a bit tired of the Love At First Sight thing that is so prevalent in YA fiction today. There's got to be another, more creative way for these characters to fall in love.
