Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr

The novel, Ink Exchange, by Melissa Marr is a story of a girl named Leslie. Just like any other teen she wishes she could escape from the life she's living and start a new one somewhere else new and fresh. After her mother passed away, everything in her life changed completely. Her father was no longer a father figure to her and her brother always sold her to his friend in order to make money. Leslie spends most of her time at the ink parlor around the corner from her house. The only problem is, she doesn't know the secret that the parlor hides. The novel is like any teenage life but with a twist. It's full of love, magic, complications, and much more. You could think of it as the Romeo and Juliet of the 21st century with a little umph added on. The beginning could be a little confusing at first but you understand it more in the middle. Ink Exchange is one of those books only a female can read to deeply understand and in my opinion I think it was written to reach out to teenage girls. The book is one of those books you just cannot put down, you just need to know what happens to the characters. Another way to think of it, it's that movie that's so full of suspense that you just can't watch but you constantly ask the people around you "What's going on?! Did he find her?! Is she hiding? Did she run away? Someone jsut please tell me what's going on!" Ink Exchange is a must read. Melissa Marr is a great writer and one of my personal favorites.
