My personal Rating-
First off, let me just squee about the cover! At first look, I wasn’t sold on it. In person, though, it’s stunningly vivid and so pretty! I was so excited to read “The Ruby Moon” after the first book in the series left off in a cliffhanger; needless to say, I’m very eager to read #3 because this sequel’s cliffhanger was worse! Hahaha. Really, though, “The Paper Boat” is definitely on my Can’t-Wait-to-Read-it List for 2017! :)

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!
