it was ok
Read in May, 2012

Hmm. I feel guilty giving this 2 stars, since it just came out and it's a 1st novel by a new author and it wasn't terrible. But there were a lot of problems with it.

There was a lot to like about this book- it was very evocative of a haunting time and place, with some deliciously creepy moments to it. It was simultaneously a thriller/mystery and loss of innocence/coming of age novel, but didn't really succeed at either. Ultimately the plot was too loose and the writing too weak for me to consider it a good read.
