Review | Sugar Lump by Megan Gaudino

[amazon_image id=”1773395459″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]Sugar Lump[/amazon_image]

Unfortunately I did not finish this book. I did not love the first few pages and quickly got disinterested. The main character was abrasive and made me dislike her from the get go.

If you’ve read this and want to persuade me to give it another go, please leave a brief comment without spoilers as to why I should.
