It's always interesting to see the depths of feeling that can be conveyed via characters who do not feel as others do. Berman takes good advantage of that in this book, a story by a girl (Karen) who was feral until her (presumably) aunt discovers her as part of taking over the family tuna business that the aunt inherited. Though Karen eventually learns to live in the world of people, her feral years stunted portions of her development, including certain amounts of feeling and emotion. However, despite Karen's different emotional make-up, if not because of it, Berman manages to convey a surprising amount of emotion to the reader. The story is engaging, but the chance to connect with this character who connects so differently is the real joy of the book.
