The link-up will be here at A Few More Pages every Friday.
I had planned to do this with a totally different book, but this morning bailed on that book for now (The Crying Tree by Naseem Rakha). Instead I am reading The Starlet by Mary McNamara, which I won over a year ago!

I've read enough to know that a "starlet" is high and has climbed to the top of a fountain statue in Florence. This does not bode well for her...
