liked it

I received this book from the publisher.

I have mixed feelings about this book. There seems to be an excessive amount of information leading up to getting to know Phiona. I would have liked more of Phiona and her life story.

Because of chess Phiona has opportunites that she would not untherwise have which is good. Yet where she lives is and will be difficult for her to realize her dreams and goals.
