YA book doing what YA books do best - showing just how much work growing up can be. I know nothing about snowboarding, but appreciated the descriptions of it in this book, and what it meant to the main character - how much she misses who she is when she's on the mountain really struck a chord with me, who misses who she used to be when she danced. Syrah's a great character, who figrues out what it means to be Syrah - not her father's daughter or her horrible half-siblings' little sister, or her manga alter ego - over the course of the story. I think Justina Chen Headley is a fabulous author, who writes relationships the way they really are, not just the way we wish they could be. Great story.
