I admit that I was pretty annoyed by the heroine of this novel for the first disc or so, but she really grew on me. It seems that there are an awful lot of YA novels that focus on quirky outsider girls, and I sometimes feel that this demographic is really overrepresented compared to their actual presence in the world. But Cyd is a charming and fun girl, and I really enjoyed her adventures in New York City. It's also refreshing to read a YA book that deals with a heavy topic, but keeps the tone light and gives the reader hope for Cyd's future. Even better, the book covers a range of topics that teens can deal with, from life-changing choices to the broken heart. I felt resilient listening to this, and I'm looking forward to picking up the next installment.
