Between The Pages 
A sweet young adult romance. In the beginning I didn’t know this was a young adult story or the age of the main characters, however, the author draws you in with a skilled craft of scene visualization. A well-written descriptive voice places the reader in every emotional scene. Ace and John are strong leading characters. They both have a huge amount of family drama, but they still maintain bonded to their families. There is also an interesting cast of secondary characters. The author taps into the native culture which provides the reader a nice look into historical rituals. This book is packed with emotion and includes a dramatic action scene near the ending. An enjoyable story.

4 Stars
