This book is about a girl named Valancy who lives with her mother, aunt, and other family who are terribly horrible to her. They don’t let her do anything that she wants and hardly even let her talk. She imagines a place that she calls her blue castle and spends most of her time imagining the life she would like to live. She has some medical issues and consults a doctor about them. He writes her a letter that says she could die anytime between a week and a year. She decides to leave her family and be bold about living the life that she wanted to. She meets Barney and he takes care of her while she is away from family. I liked this book because of the funny romance it had and Valancy’s character. I would recommend it to those who like romance.
