So mysterious, so evasive~

In many ways, this is the most true book I have ever read about what it feels to be a dreamy pre-adolescent girl. Leticia senses a strange sort of power within her, but she's also overwhelmed with confusion, uncertainty, unnamable longings~

This is a good but sad book; I don't think I'll be ruining anything by telling you that Leticia's strange powers are killed, restrained, by the adults in her life, who actually force her into a life of submission when they think they are protecting her.

Anyway, this was wonderful.
