by Nancy Werlin

Publisher: Penguin group

ISBN: 978-0-8037-3002-1

Rating: 5 out of 5

is a beautifully written story that is inspired by the folk song “Scarborough Fair”. The story was so captivating that I couldn’t put it down!

The Scarborough girls are have been cursed through the generations, in which at eighteen, they will be forced to complete three impossible tasks or become insane upon their child’s birth. Lucy Scarborough isn’t alone; she has her foster parents, Zach who loves her, and clues. Together, they help Lucy but SHE has to be the one that completes the three tasks and break the curse.

Before this book, I had never read any of Nancy Werlin’s books. When I saw this book cover I had high hopes for the story to be as good as the cover and it was! Actually, it was better than my expectations. I was so thrilled because the plot was completely different to anything I have ever read before.

The characters were lovable, Lucy’s foster parents, her supportive friend Sarah and last but not least Zach *gushes* (he’s so dreamy!).The curse, suspense, mystery and romance between Lucy and Zach were so intense and compassionate it had me flying across the pages.

I loved everything that occurred in the book, nothing too predictable or corny. The suspense made it hard for me to put the book down.

The story was very well plotted and deals with the traumatic events Lucy experiences (child abandonment, rape and pregnancy); but focussed mainly on the pregnancy, her romance with Zach and breaking the curse.

The narrating would shift and so the point of view of the characters would change from character to character, therefore making it a little confusing at times. But it shouldn’t stop anybody from reading this fantastic tale.

Overall,I absolutely loved this book and rate it five out of five! I recommend this book for YA who love a little fantasy mixed in with reality, suspense and romance. 
Contains a non-graphic rape scene.

Do you think there will be a cure for AIDS in your lifetime? Why or why not?

Yes, I hope so, its a very serious pandemic, a very big issue and I'm sure that one day a super smart person/group will find a cure!

If you could have a power that helps you with day-to-day living, like the ability to always get a seat on the bus, what would choose, and why?

Hmm.. thats hard. Probably the power of time travel. That'd be so cool, I could go back to the medieval times!!

I have always loved reading and I have thought about writing some book reviews for a while now. So, maybe I'll write some book reviews here and there when I have time :D
