The magical realism and the Romeo and Juliet romance are a winning combination. I also enjoyed how the book takes place in an imaginary central valley town but names other nearby real places (hello Hanford!).
A mesmerizing blend of fantasy, magic, and mystery. Each character is so real and unique - I just want to live inside this book.
