Synopsis from Goodreads:
Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.

Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.

What really happened?
Someone knows.
Someone is lying.

Every story needs a hero. Every story needs a villain. Every story needs a secret.

This story follows three characters, Wink, Poppy, and Midnight.  In this book, not everything is as it seems and it's keeps you guessing a bit on who is not who they say they are and whose lying. It seems that people have pretty mixed feelings towards this book. I have seen people who either really love it or people who really dislike it. It seems like there is no in between. When I first started it I didn't understand why anybody would dislike it, it was gold! But, then I got mid-way through the book and I was like, "Oh, that's why." The beginning was going good, I loved it! Halfway it took a sharp, weird turn, that I didn't really like, and the characters turned out not to be as they portray themselves (which I knew that was going to happen but I didn't expect in the way it happened). This is the point that really just began to lose my interest and got me confused about a certain characters change in character. But, by the time that everything unfolded in the end and explained why certain things happened; I realized that it was pretty freaking awesome!

In the beginning, one character really stood out to me, and that was Wink.  I was seriously admiring Wink. I loved the way she didn't let other people and their hateful words towards her affect her in any way. She just shrugged it off like it was nothing. She was pretty freaking awesome! ;D Here is one quote from her that I loved,

"'So everyone saw my unicorn underwear, Midnight. So what. Repeat after me. So everyone saw Wink's unicorn underwear who cares.' ...
'In a hundred years, who will care about my unicorn underwear? Who cares right now? There are bigger things to think about.'
'Bigger things like what?
'Battles and wars. Lost causes and lost loved. Unsolved mysteries and magical ring and Here Be Dragons. Fairy Paths..." ~Wink Poppy Midnight page 62

Even though, things happened in this book that I wasn't the biggest fan of, overall, this book was amazing. It felt realistic, the characters, the plot, everything. The author portrayed everything amazingly! I am definitely looking forward to reading more of her books in the future! ;D

Thanks so much for reading!!
