But that is the extent of Mira’s planning skillz – she, apparently, has completely forgotten that in running away, she actually needs to find some kind of shelter, find a way to get food, and, oh yeah, actually find her parents (really not smart at all).
But it’s ok, because once Mira arrives in Beau Rivage, she sets up camp in the town casino, where she is immediately noticed by not one, but TWO hot, rich brothers (separately).
Mirabelle’s past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents’ tragic deaths to her guardians’ half-truths about why she can’t return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage.
Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined.
I like the idea of different classifications of curses and fairy gifts, and the strange birthmarks that those touched by said curses and gifts bear.
These are cool ideas and I like the creativity of Ms. That said, there’s a whole lotta bad that buries all of that promise.
First, there’s the problem of the moronic heroine, Mira.
It’s hard to connect with a book whose protagonist is as willfully idiotic as Mira, who lacks any actual clear judgment, decision-making skills, and common sense.
Of course, everyone only says STAY AWAY without giving her ANY FURTHER INFORMATION, purportedly because of the nature of Blue and Felix’s curse prevents anyone from speaking to the specifics.
So, on the eve of her birthday, Mira decides to run away to finally get some answers.
Leaving a fake trail for her godmothers to follow (pretending to be a lovestruck teenager with an impressive backlog of emails to a fictional boyfriend in California), Mira carefully concocts her plan to run away to her hometown to find her parents’ graves and hopefully receive some closure.
