This was good but from all the hype I was expecting more. It's one of those books that you the ending is very important to "getting the hype". ANd yes I agree that it's a good read and an important message but I think people built it up too much for me, that and I think there have been books since this came out with similar serious content that I read so it wasn't quite as shocking or eye opening as it may have been for others.

That said it's definitely worth reading. Also I think I was confused some since I listened to the audiobook and there were points that it wasn't clear if she said the comments out loud or thought them. So that unfortunately clouds my experience of the story. I'm a huge audiobook fan but I'd recommend NOT listening to it for that reason.
