i always ramble about this book, and with good reason: it's, without question, one of the books that made me want to be a writer.

you can put aside the incredibly strong "female empowerment" theme, the unusual but effective stylistic choices, and the incredibly strong voice of Warner and you'll still see a well-crafted, endearing and engaging story. it's meaningful and complicated enough to demand an infinite number of readings. i often find myself returning to it when i wonder whether or not writing is the best path for me to have chosen.

i judge every novel i read in comparison to this book. it's marvelous, and i recommend it to anyone and everyone.
