I grabbed this a few weeks ago at the City Library sale. It's a quick read that I zoomed through today in about an hour, but not a particularly engaging one. I found it very slow to start and while the action definitely picked up as the story went along - getting onto the boat to America gave it a major kick - I was just never really all that invested in it. A shame because it sounds interesting, but overall I found it a bit too bland.

I liked this more than I was expecting to, but it still failed to entirely capture my imagination. I think the big problem was that it didn't establish the character well enough in the beginning for me to care much about her fate until the later half of the book. I also found it a bit too melodramatic, but I realise that fault for me would probably make it more enjoyable for the age demographic it's aimed at.

This wasn't the best book I've ever read, but I did enjoy it. The story is interesting enough, but I thought the writing lacked something.

I was not a fan of this book. I felt it was pointless. If you have nothing better to do, then read this book. But I am sure there are other things that could occupy your time.
