Castrovilla packs a lot into this book - eating disorders, sexual assault, and depression. It all adds to some heavy psychological drama that is likely to appeal to teen girls. My one big problem with the book is that I found it almost unforgivably classist. The villain's only qualities seem to be that he comes from a rough neighborhood, has bad grammar, and knows how to turn a woman on. The hero, on the other hand, is super-rich, plays classical cello, and can quote Shakespeare extensively. While the classism rankled me, I would hand this book to girls who are always looking for an engrossing book with lots of drama.
