Really great book. So sad about Family Affairs ending. But her new start in Broadway may be great. I wonder how her relationship with Austin will go. And how the show will pick up and what new problems she wil encounter.

The Giver is a very good book,
However the ending was terrible in my opinion, and sequels are needed. I might read another book in the quartet I awhile.  The Giver

Gen is an excellent thief, he is good a slinking, stealing, and picking locks, but he is bad about secrecy. He steals the kings sigil and then brags about it, ending him up in the dungeons. Now the king wants to use Gen to steal Hamiathes Gift, which would give the king a claim to the throne of Eddis. If he gains control of Eddis the king can use their land to wage war on their old enemy of Attolia. However, not everyone wants the stone to be found.
I love this book. I reread it this summer, and it was just as good as I remembered. Gen and most of the characters grow on you, and the surprise ending will leave you chiding yourself that you didn’t pick up on it. All in all a great read.
