it was ok
bookshelves: coming-of-age
Read in April, 2003

Despite Hamilton's lovely prose and complex, intriguing themes, I simply could not get into this book. I couldn't stand any of the characters (which wouldn't have been a problem if they had at least been interesting, but sadly they weren't), the semi-mystical plot points felt unnecessary and haphazard, and the complacent attitudes toward prejudice and abuse were infuriating.
