My Take- 

The Poughkeepsie app really defines hands on/interactive reading. It was a whole new experience from reading it the first time. Not only do you get cool notes from the author throughout the story, but there are lots of great images, extras and music. I have never had so much fun reading a book before! I felt like I was discovering things in a whole new way. I would highly recommend this app for lovers of Poughkeepsie. And if you haven’t read the book, what are you waiting for? It’s an amazing story.

Original Poughkeepsie Review/Casting-

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 Stars!
"He counts. You've smiled at him four hundred and forty-six times as of a few minutes ago. He announces the number every time I see him."

This book was fantastic! The first half of the book was a beautiful love story of Livia and Blake (who I just loved) Livia was such a great character. She was kind and compassionate, and always tried to do the right thing. Blake was just adorable, such the gentleman. He was a sweetheart and the part where he counts her smiles, I love that!  The second half of the book got a little crazy. There was tons of drama, especially with one of Blake’s ‘brothers’ Beckett- my most favorite character in the book! He was a mess at times, but everything he did, even the most terrible things were for good reasons- protecting his brothers. And he was hilarious! Two of my favorite quotes about Beckett:
"Beckett is probably the hardest person there is to love, he does life wrong for all the right reasons." and
"Beckett is all sorts of bad because of what he does, but who he is- that's very beautiful."

That pretty much sums him up. Also have to say I loved Liv’s sister Kyle. She was so funny! Cole rubbed me the wrong way at very first, but he defiantly grew on me. I loved how the story went into most everyones background and you got to see a lot about all the characters. This book was wonderful!
