The Spare - Carolyn Jewel It pains me to give a Carolyn Jewel book only one star but The Spare is a hot mess. The plot is all over the place and difficult to follow. The characters are unlikeable. The dreams and the ghost and the side plots and characters all jumbled together and left me bored. Really bored.

This is clearly an earlier work by Jewel and was either edited too much or not enough. Either way, skip it and read some of her more recent books which are fabulous.

I'm going to pretend this book never happened.
