It took me a bit to get through this book; it was well written with some truly inspired prose and some interesting characters, but the dual narrative confused me and pulled me out of the story. Plus I though Taylor was such a whiny ungrateful jerk sometimes, she got on my nerves! She was not a likable character for me, and it brought the book down a bit. Nevertheless as the story progressed I felt drawn into the characters' tragedy, and the beauty and sorrow hit close to home. This is how it is, sometimes, just so dang sad. Marchetta had a gift for articulating it.
