Speaking of Parrish … talk about some unresolved issues! There were various points throughout the book where I yelled at Sophie to just kiss him already. The tension between the two of them is fantastic and irritating in equal measure, simply because you know they are awesome together. I loved how Sophie owned her sexuality and didn’t apologize for having previous partners, and how she could now admit to herself that she really, really wanted to be with Parrish. (Confession: So do I.)
This is the last stop on my interview tour of Canadian book blogs, and she turned The Heroine Question round on me. I probably should have expected this, and it was fun to tell her all about the early history books I read as a six and seven year old.
Sleeping Hedgehog, meanwhile, has a new review of Child of a Hidden Sea.
