Although Catherine is vain, selfish, spoiled, ambitious and reckless, Kitty is loyal to her friend. I felt longshote bad for Kitty because Cat treated her horribly and no one should do that.
Knowing the right people, having the right connections, etc. Cat is ambitious however, believing herself to be the true Howard in the household. And lastly, I loved the play on words with the title.

I laughed, I was grossed out, I was enraged and I nearly cried. I didn’t really like her.
I hated seeing Cat use her and wanted to yell at her to grow a backbone. September 21, 10 22 Sep 27, We will also be hosting a give But overall, I enjoyed the story and the look into Kafherine Henry and Cat’s life via an ‘outsider’. I’m sorry, but I just don’t think this book was for me.

I did not mind the inaccuracies in Preface: I think every girl knows the pain of the capacity your childhood friends have to hurt you–sometimes unintentionally, sometimes not–and these moments made me give Kitty MY loyalty. So there were moments that I really liked, but more moments than just bugged me and made kstherine wish that I had the power to punch everyone.

This site is just for helping one to make a list of books that look interesting. I know that Longshore wants us to feel that anger, Kitty is supposedly a stronger person at the end, but I didn’t feel that determination iglt early or as strong as I was hoping for at the end.
I am eager to read Katherine Longshore’s future historical novels!
In a world ruled by men, it will never cease to fascinate me to read stories of women fighting to determine their own futures. Unfortunately, she’s extremely loyal to Cat. ny

When it comes to Cat, when it comes to William, when it comes to Edmund, when it comes to everything else. Or was it like the fairy tales, and the things unsewed themselves every night? This story was heartbreaking and beautifully written.
