4.5 Stars
Please don't be misled.
A couple of things might throw you off about this book. First, the cover, which is incredibly misleading. A photo of a contemporary girl with lots of eyeliner isn't even close to what's in the content. Second, and prob...more

" 4.5 stars There are about 100 reasons why this book wouldn't normally work for me. The story is related in fragments, often consisting of no more than half a page. The timeline is fluid, shifting between past and present. It's told in flipping SEC... " Read more of this review »

“I'm walking past the Unitarian church that's not far from the cemetery where you can find Emily Dickinson's grave, when I realize that in this part of my life I've become a scarecrow. It's been like this since that day the police came to the house - I have holes in me, and wind blows through. Oh, I seem to be person-shaped all right, but I'm going nowhere.”
