“I'm going to agree with a lot of others who have reviewed and say something fell flat for Sam and Grace in Linger. Their relationship seemed a little stale, but I think that was because it was strained. However, I did like Isabelle's and Cole's characters immensely. At first I gave Linger four stars but remembered how deeply the end moved me. Maggie's writing is pretty and lyrical. Its thought provoking and thats what matters right? I think the plot is sometimes paused and unsure of itself, but the core, the writing is amazing. Read Linger and remember these kids are flawed and thats how the author made them. It seems a little coincidental, but its fantasy. Get lost in Grace's world and believe. It makes the book what its supposed to be, magical.”
