Hard to read -- painful, at times. I was a teenage girl once, though not as troubled as our narrator, thankfully. The tawdriest parts of my own diaries pale in comparison. Some parts of this book rang so true that I had to put it down for a moment to react. Other parts made me wonder if the author was just trying to pile as much horrible shit onto her character as she possibly could, for dramatic effect. But then, I'm sure there are plenty of real girls who had it worse.
