it was amazing

** spoiler alert ** It kept seeming the author was about to dump her characters into big pits of horribleness--but she never did. She let her characters show some spine, reach out to love, and catch a break. My favorite genre: flawed, unlucky characters who appear to have nothing going for them but who find happiness through love in unlikely places.
