I enjoyed this story, although I had a hard time relating to the characters. The Jazz age in New York City was a wonderful setting, the different underground bars, dresses, dancing shoes and the variety of dances created a magical atmosphere that made the twelve sisters disappearing into the night very believable. The story focused mainly on Jo, but was written in the third person and bounced around to all the characters (it also had a ton of parenthesized thoughts from the characters, which was something different then I'm used to). This didn't really bother me, but I didn't feel like I really connected to anyone, even near the end when there were a lot of emotions. Overall, I did enjoy this fairy tale retold as historical fiction, but the point of view didn't work for me.
