Debut novel has me turning pages

"The characters in this first novel by LB Griffin are believable and have you turning pages to find out what happens next ! It was easy to pick up and put down and follow the plot. It explores the life of Harriet who does emerge from the pages and become real. The book has me hooked and I want to know more about Harriet's future adventures."
