Color of Loneliness - Madeleine Beckett 4 stars. Overall I enjoyed the book but admit Dylan was hard to like. At the beginning I wanted to smack him over the head. Myra, I really liked - poor girl I just wanted to hug her. Susie, Susie, Susie...she cracked me up. The story does take a while to build up - it's not until past the half way point that things begin to happen between the two main characters. I appreciate the time the author took crafting the story and forgive her for leaving me w/ a hell of cliff hanger. Looking forward to book 2 :)
