Won this novella from bookmovement.com - I did enjoy this story very much, but I felt it ended with way too many unanswered questions. It was a nice coming-of-age story about a precocious Lulu from age 4 to college, but it was just too short. I liked Lulu's voice, admired the insight of such a young one, making the story quite fascinating. I felt like I was just getting into it and then it ended!
