Before anyone gets all up-in-arms about my three star rating, let me just say that I give my ratings based on my reading experience, not based on quality. Because this book is quality. There's no doubt about that. But I haven't had a more stressful reading experience since I read Copper Sun in grad school.

This book made me a stressed-out, anxiety-ridden mess. And although that made my reading experience less enjoyable, it's a testament to the power of the story. Because this shouldn't be a pleasant story, and the family's precarious position was a cause of anxiety. So...success! But I am really looking forward to an easier, more relaxing read. I was glad to leave this world, and feel very lucky that I can.
