My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Libby Tanner only wants to paint. She started at the age of 3 and began selling her work at 7. There’s just a little something different with Libby’s art, it sometimes come to life. She’s convinced her parents to let her attend an art school in London where she meets Dean and Brent.

Brent seems to be the nice guy who is interested in Libby. But Libby can’t help but be fascinated by Dean, the somewhat bad boy who she thinks may have a girlfriend. Libby soon finds there is a lot more going on with the boys and also with her artwork.

I really enjoyed this young adult fantasy. The characters seemed more mature than the ages given. The story wasn’t the typical teen drama which on the surface looks like it might be. The story seemed to be going in the direction of a love triangle but went way beyond. With that and the world of the artwork it was completely entertaining.

A few small critiques… there were times things could’ve been given a bit more detail. For example, Brent and Libby go on a picnic and they fill their plates, exchange a short conversation and all of sudden they are done. Couldn’t help but get a giggle thinking of speed dating. Also, I was starting to wonder if they only served turkey sandwiches at the school. Small things that could’ve used a bit of work in the story but didn’t really hurt the plot.

Overall a fun, quick read.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
