Conhecimento Comum



This was very well-written. Santa Montefiore surely knows how to tell a story. Mischa, the main character was a very sweet boy with abandonment issues. As he approached his teenage years, he started to loose control and to put more and more walls around himself. Walls who were only down when he was with his beloved mother since their relationship was very special. When she dies, Mischa decides to resolve a mystery left unresolved when she died, and is forced to face some of the demons from his past.

Ok so... this was a good book, with a good story and characters. It could have been so much better, though. It was a bit slow until the middle of the book (more or less), I would say and the story had a few clichés, but it was a good book which I enjoyed reading. :)
