“The Forever Girl is the first in a new series by author Rebecca Hamilton and I absolutely loved it. Sophia is a tremendous heroine, easily loved within moments of beginning her story. She is an outcast in a teeny town, shunned because of how others perceive her. To make matters worse, she is virtually alone in the world, making her a character that you just want to hug and make everything all better for her. All of the characters were wonderfully developed, many of them throwing me for a loop as time went on. I loved that even the less central characters had their own distinct personalities and stories. That made for a fantastically fun read.
I loved the twists and turns that the plot took, keeping me turning the pages. Just as soon as I thought I had things reasoned out, something would happen to change everything. The story went back and forth in time periodically, but it did so seamlessly, strengthening rather than muddying the story. One of my favorite parts of the book was the dedication to accuracy and detail to Sophia's Wiccan ways. This can be lacking in witchy fiction and can be disappointing if you know better. So I truly appreciated that aspect.
I truly cannot wait for the next book in this series!”
