I don't want to give away too much of the storyline as it is a very short story, but I was so impressed how Picoult's characters sprung to life in just a few pages. Her style is beautiful and the story unravels seamlessly. Serenity's two spirit guides Desmond and Lucinda are funny and unpredictable while Serenity herself is very cocky and sure of herself. But this story is a refection on the negative influence of celebrity culture and how it can corrupt and distort our morals. Very relevant to the world we live in today.
Make sure you read this very short novella before you read Leaving Time as it really gives you a much better insight into Serenity's character and will help make the ending of Leaving Time so much more poignant. But the ending is very, very abrupt so have Leaving Time on hand to continue the story!
