It was the mentioning of Christian Dior that made me curious to read the book Well, not only that, but I was intrigued by the fact that the main character, Copper, strikes up a friendship with the well known fashion designer A man I know next to nothing about.

1 1 2 stars rounded upI was really disappointed in this as I really wanted to love it The story felt clunky and disjointed and the characters felt very one dimensional with minimal character development I would have DNF d but since I won it in a giveaway I wanted to finish it to see if it got better.
