This book really should get 4.5 star. I try to reserve 5 stars for the ones like no other. However, this story of a little girl who runs away from something in the woods and is found in a small town it enchanting. She captures the reader's heart. There are also so many other great characters in this book! I enjoyed this thoroughly and couldn't put it down. These is only one thing that I felt was left hanging. I won't give it away but it does have to do with Max, the doctor.
