I had the opportunity to read "The Writing Circle" by Corrine Demas as a part of B&N's First Look club. I had a difficult time getting into the story, and blamed it in part as I was having difficulty reading it on my iTouch, so it ultimately took me quite awhile to read. I did not enjoy the fast changes in the short peeks in each characters lives. About halfway through, I finally did get wrapped into the story, all the way to the shocking ending. It was, in the end for me, a satisfying read, and will recommend it for book clubs!
