really liked it
Read in June, 2012

This book hooked me right away and I had to keep reading. Good writing. great story. I really like how Jamie, the main character, takes charge of her life after she is kicked out on the street by her father. I also enjoyed a couple characters who she meets, particularly the ex-con LaVon, who is not a stereotype.

Of course, I was frustrated with Jamie hanging on to the boyfriend for so long, but I guess I was supposed to be. I was very frustrated with her reasoning for not telling anyone what was going on and getting help--the whole Mom in LA thing was not convincing to me. But this book was definitely worth finishing despite these frustrations.
