For several years I've watched on the sidelines as authors entered this contest, waiting for my turn to publish something that would make me eligible. Entering was a joy... Receiving an Honorable Mention? <3 I'm floating!
So what did the judges say?
I really loved this book, this is a sweet, simple story about how love and true friendship can make miracles. The plot is well developed, with just that little angst that makes the situation interesting. I stayed up all night to finish it, could not put it down. Had to know there was the happy ending. I like how the characters are described, they feel real, and you share their feelings, their love, their fears with them. I really really enjoyed it.
This was just one of those stories that really sucked me in… I could have kept reading it forever.
I really liked this book.The story wasn't terribly angst-filled or high-octane suspenseful. It was more like spending time with friends. I enjoyed the characters' journey (and as a mother of twins who don't get along, I appreciated the relationship between the Lang brothers!)
And a note: Unlike most contests where Honorable Mention means you're not eligible to win any higher prizes, in the Rainbow Awards, Honorable Mentions are given to authors who received at least one 36/40 score from a judge!
I'm excited to see if Leaving Flowers, I'll Always Miss You, and Most Beautiful Words get a nod as well. <3
