Read in November, 2008

Nothing spectacular--it's almost like a trial size sample of Alice Hoffman's writing. There's the usual fairytale like quality and hints of magical realism; standard Hoffman stuff. What's strange is the approach it takes. There's been some type of disaster (perhaps the result of some form of terrorism in this unnamed seeting), but we never get the back story as to what happened or why. Instead, the novella focuses on how the loss of her family and way of life affect the main character, Green. It's a quick and easy read, but not as gripping as perhaps a more fleshed out story would have been.
