This book ripped my heart out in all the best ways possible.
Skin Room is a remarkable novel. Vividly and intensely written, if a bit claustrophobic. After a while I felt trapped, like I was stuck in an elevator with someone who couldn't stop whining about how lousy her life is. But Teresa's plight certainly draws the reader's sympathy, and once you get past the complaints, her story becomes engaging. Individual scenes and episodes are memorable and stand out. All in all, a excellent first book by a very talented writer.
