Even though this had a stellar ending I have to admit that a lot of this story was a snoozer. There was lots of backstory and build up that I think was well written and necessary to the story but just didn't capture my attention. (Hence the long time it took me to finish) 3.5 Stars and unsure about reading book 2. ( )

This was somewhere between a 2 and 3 for me. The beginning half was slow and predictable as well as completely dramatic. The end was better and it almost got me interested in reading the next in the series but not quite. I don't think I would recommend this book to anyone honestly. Just an ok read. ( )

I also couldn't get into this story. I think the whole flipping back and forth between characters was disorienting. I think that the concept is cool and the look into a fascinating period in American history was very cool. This book is like a 20's version of Gossip Girl. So if you like drama and intrigue this book is definitely for you. ( )

I really wanted to love this book. This is one of my favorite times in history. Ultimately, I didn't care about the characters and not enough attention was paid to the history, fashion, or even the music of the Roaring 20's. I have no desire to read the rest of this series. ( )

Excellent! Set in the middle of Prohibition, and told from the point of view of three girls, readers get a hint of life amongst the rich during bootlegging. We're introduced to gangsters and speakeasies, and their lifestyles. Each of the girls has a unique story to tell, as anger, longing and jealousy drip from the pages. A great read. ( )

All life is just a progression toward,
and then a recession from,
one phrase - I love you.

~F. Scott Fitzgerald ("The Off-Shore Pirate,"
The Saturday Evening Post, 29 May 1920)



I don't want to live.
I want to love first,
and live incidentally.

~Zelda Fitzgerald (1919)
For the two finest modern-day flappers,
Beverly and Wendy:
You've got all the moves.
