Read in August, 2007

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I thought it would be a run-of-the-mill story about another New England boarding school, like so many Hollywood movies are fashioned after. And while, at times, it was (the typical blond beauty, the jock the insecure girl lusts after, the closet lesbian), what I found different about this book was how everything DIDN'T end up all neatly wrapped in a bow.

The main character, Lee Fiora, didn't find the answers to all her questions by the time the book ended. She didn't just miraculously get a makeover, fit in with the popular people, and all was well. She had to work hard to get where she ended up, and still didn't have all the answers.

And I think everyone needs a friend like Martha. If only there were more people like her in "the real world".

Overall, good book, perfect for late-summer reading.
