really liked it
Read in July, 2008

Deceptively simple, but moving, story about a girl who accidentally gets herself into a lot of trouble. I liked that she was always regretting what she said, but couldn't really stop herself from doing it. There's something about writing an unsympathetic character or at least one whose actions kind of make you cringe that I think is admirable. I am kind of surprised it was a National Book Award finalist...I actually think that the Sarah Dessen book I read recently was more complex. But, who am I to judge?
