MY THOUGHTS: 4 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS
Well, I must say this book is definitely not what I expected, though I felt the synopsis was rather vague so I wasn’t too sure what to expect anyway. Drew/Win is a solitary boy who’s attending boarding school. His story is told in rotating chapters, of the present time and the summer he was 10 years old when his life changed forever. The story was not an action filled one, but something kept the pages turning for me and I finished the book in one sitting, at 1:30 A.M.
It’s extremely difficult to write this review without giving too much of the book away, but I’ll just say this is something I believe readers will either love or hate with not much middle ground. The way the story builds will mean the twist at the end will either piss you off or sadly shock you.
I’m having a very hard time figuring out what else to say about Charm & Strange without spoiling it, so I’ll just say that this book will definitely affect you, in one way or another, and it’s very much worth a read.
