I wasn't really sold on the initial plot, and didn't always feel like I knew what March was doing and why. Even when she explained her motives, I wasn't totally with her. But this novel is pretty short (115 rather small pages) so I stuck with it, and in the end, I'm glad I did.

For a short read, this book was still real well written. I enjoyed it and liked that it was Canadian setting. My only thing I was not sold on was why March was doing the things she did. It all lead up to something huge, like as if she was going to run away, but she never does.
