Cute, but definitely didn't have the same personality, uniqueness and vibrancy as "A Little Something Different". I liked the conflict, and I had some swoon moments over Teo. Honestly Ravi just reminded me of the brother on "The League". And not in a good way. There was a lot of interesting stuff in this book though that was thought-provoking and different. Ultimately, pretty run of the mill.

Love the concept but I feel like Lee's "gold sense" was under-utilized. Also, very typical set-up for the journey, in my opinion. I won't ruin it with spoilers here but all the initial conflict was nothing new and merely there to provide incentive for Lee to run away to California. Some parts of the novel were slow too, and seemed to be lacking in conflict. Like, okay, I get it- they're on the trail. Still on the trail. Waiting. Still waiting.

That being said, SOOO cool to combine historical fiction (especially Oregon Trail stuff) with some magic. Love it.
