Kind of interesting. I did find that most of the characters were somewhat annoying, though the adults more so. Not that I'm excusing Taswell's behavior, but it's more understandable for a teen to be a brat than for adults to be utterly clueless and self-absorbed when it comes to taking care of a teenager they've known her entire life. It's kind of sad. The ending was nice, I suppose.
