it was amazing

Gorgeous language. Open the book anywhere and you're immediately gripped by the story. The only criticism I have is that Miller (in an interview) described her main protagonist as 'limited.' With someone as articulate as Joey/Lisha it's hard to see where the limitations are, though they do become more apparent toward the end of the book as she makes decisions and keeps her actions secret --- very much against her own best interests.
