I also loved the idea behind 'Inertia' by Veronica Roth; to mind-meld with someone and share memories while they are on the edge of death. There were really so many well-crafted love stories, all different in their own interesting concept. They all tied together in that they reflected some form of love or romance, but at the same time they felt separate and important in their own ways.
I recommend reading both anthologies if you are a fan of young adult literature and love stories (both romantic and unconventional). And yes, some were more realistic, in terms of being about love that ends or does not quite go as "Hollywood" as most love stories would. It was not all bubble gum, unicorns and rainbows (although, a couple were).
Sherlock is as you would imagine he would be as a teenager, but with more heart and surprising emotional understanding. I personally loved Mycroft's character, appearing out of nowhere, mostly at every dark turn Moriarty is about to take, and accomplishing everything asked of him effortlessly. Bravo!
Also, Watson is a side character. Ha! Not a very long book either, so when I could not put it down, it did not take to long to finish it. Great storyline, great characters, I am ready to read the next; so, be prepared for another Lock and Mori review in the near future!
The small, but mighty, Lucy is my kind of hero by the end of the book. From Librarian to Lioness, and crazy like we all get when revealing pieces of ourselves and discovering secrets we hide in the deepest parts of our hearts. And Josh, who you think is a stiff-shirted prick, is really a shy marshmallow.
This book is everything I needed right now, to combat being sick. I am running out to add it to my library. I cannot wait for more from Sally Thorne!
