You know that feeling you get when you're delving into the contents of a book, and then you just back away for a moment, thinking, "Maybe I won't like it so much after all?" Well, that's how I felt at first with this. I didn't trust the novel to turn out as good as it did, later. Everyone seemed so shallow and the story was kind of depressing, with bits of satire just added to lift the mood. But I was determined to finish another book from my haul, so I continued reading, and eventually it did get better. Of course, it wasn't the perfect read, because there were moments where I was sorely tempted to just tell Tere that she should seriously do something about her inability to stand up for herself, but later on, what with the many friends she was starting to find and with her confidence and ability to speak rising and Gavin, I was pretty satisfied by the end. I'd totally recommend this.

4.2 out of 5.
