Review: FINALLY, I’ve been meaning to read this book since the moment I received it in an owlcrate box in 2017. Other books caught my eye and this just kept getting pushed back.
This was a fun read, to me, nothing more. It had adventure, life lessons, and character development which made it such a quick and enjoyable (sometimes laugh out loud) read. I read it really quickly — like 3 days. In the beginning I hated Monty, I didnt like his attitude and felt like at the age of 18 you could be a little more of an adult. However, I think that’s what made the character development so good. I also enjoyed the romance of the story and the strong female character.
I’ve seen people say this is historical fiction, while it is set in the past and their are instances that let you truly understand what it was like back then I wouldn’t necessarily call it historical fiction. At least not the historical fiction that I read.
Anyways, I rated it:
Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
