MY RATING: FOUR STARS
Four Stars

My Review:

This book centers around two main characters, a 17 year old teenager named Josh and a 31 year old hairdresser named Sabrina.  Josh’s life intersects with Sabrina’s when he breaks her window while trying to deliver her newspaper.  He wants to make retribution for it and they end up developing a complicated but interesting relationship.  The characters in the book are well developed and intriguing.

I really did enjoy this book, however I kept waiting for something MORE to happen.  The plot was a little bit slow paced and I felt there could have been so much more done with it.  Sabrina’s Window reminded me a little bit of the book “The Reader” by Bernhard Schlink but without the sexual scenes and focus on the romantic relationship.

Bottom line – worth reading.
