This is the third of Grimes' Emma Graham books. Emma is the 12-year old I first met many years ago in Hotel Paradise
, one of my favorite books ever. Basically, Belle Ruin
is the first half of a longer novel which includes Fadeaway Girl
(my take, Grimes might not agree). The first two books in the series stand on their own, the last two, really should go together, with some serious cutting and editing. I have basically discussed my views of these two books under Fadeaway Girl
, so if you care what I thought, go to that review.
