I loved this book! Afterglow and all!

But yes, the name pronunciation would have been nice to know in the beginning. I read about a chapter or two before a friend told me that she'd flipped to the back and found the pronunciation. So then I flipped to the back as well to confirm. Before that, it was "ag-nee-ez-ka?" or "ag-nee-es-ka?" or even "ag-neece-ka?" And yes, I went through pronunciations in my head each time I came to her name and apparently wasn't even close.

I stumbled over her name for several chapters before I Googled the proper pronunciation, and then it was a struggle to retrain my brain. I also Googled Kasia and discovered I'd been saying that wrong, too. (kay-see-ah? kah-see-ah? rhymes with Asia? WRONG! ALL WRONG!) A pronunciation guide up front would have been very helpful. I'd still feel ignorant, but without that sting of silliness for pronouncing names incorrectly for a third of the book. XD
