did not like it
bookshelves: sucked
Recommended for: The Stupid
Read in September, 1999

Yeah. got to page 30 in this and then tossed it out my dorm-room window. No joke.

I hate books where you can hear the author TRYING to be someone else ... like this one. Where you can literally HEAR Kingsolver trying to write as a young girl. Cliche. Trite. Trash.
