    A story to make my introverted heart sing Camden s characters are always so real, with flaws and struggles that make them relatable Alex and Eloise were no different, bringing to the page a flare and charisma that is wonderfully trademark for this author I related so much to Eloise and her need for security at the end of the day, but also her bone deep desire to dare just a little and enjoy an unlikely adventure that would grow her and give her a taste of living beyond herself I liked Alex an A story to make my introverted heart sing Camden s characters are always so real, with flaws and struggles that make them relatable Alex and Eloise were no different, bringing to the page a flare and charisma that is wonderfully trademark for this author I related ...
