For such a simply written story Angelyn Stark was a deep and complex character that I really love. She comes off as a tough 15 yr-old girl-getting in fights, drinking beer at lunch, failing her classes-but underneath is a 12 yr old thats crying out for help and love. Where she finds it is in a closs (almost inappropriatly so) relationship with a young teacher who gives her the support and friendship she needs to stand up for who she is. But the real story isnt about them it's about HER-finding her voice. A short but great read.
