Godfrey May 18, 2007 at 9:27 pm At 57, I suppose I’m way too old to be reading YAs, but I liked _Empress of the World_, so… I well remember living with strangers because I had nowhere else to go, being drawn into sick games, and having sex with the wrong people because I was young, horny, and ignorant, so the _The Rules of Hearts_ was real to me. I kept thinking, “Battle! Get out! Get out of the house! These people will mess you up! There’s no joy here! Get out!” sara May 19, 2007 at 1:00 am godfrey, thanks so much!! i am delighted that you’re reading YA, and specifically mine. :) and yes, there is a bit of “the monster is inside the house!” going on in RULES.
