One of my favourite things about Hall's work is the variety of people that she includes in her work. She includes people from all walks of life, including a few members of the peerage, and sometimes it feels like she tries to tick off as many members of the rainbow as she can, but I think that is better representation than you'll find in most books.
The characters that Janovsky created are really hard not to fall in love with. There is so much depth to the characters, and I love how they grow and develop through the book. They are really fun and light, but serious and explore heavier matters as the book progresses.
I really enjoyed this book. The pretence of the book reminded me a lot of princess diaries, which takes me back to being about 8 years old a falling in love with my first non-fantasy book. Admittedly it not the same, but it was the hook that got me caught.
