When one lonely night she looks out of her window and sees and young giraffe, one that seems to have a silver tinge to it. As soon as she and that giraffe lock eyes, she knows that she will risk everything for it. But what she doesn’t know is that other people want the giraffe. Will she risk her life for it or is it too late?
This book was entrancing. I read this book about a two years ago and I still remember it. It had suspense, action, sadness, some very big friendships and more. I remember wanting to read this all day. After I had read it I had to read more books by Lauren St. John. There is a series for this book but it is only a series because it is the same type of story line. I absolutely loved this book and it makes you feel so warm inside. I have to say that this was one of my favorite books two years ago (2008) and I think that you would like it too. This is a weird book in a sense of what place to put it in
