Read in September, 2008
Ok, so it took me a little while to read this.
There were some parts where I was like "that's my poster! why is she giving it to some character in her book that sounds way cooler than me!" -- you know, sibling-esque reactions to someone borrowing your stuff.
There were parts where I thought "oh, this is the femme-teen coming of age story where I did the butch-teen coming of age" -- and I found that really cool, another perspective...very different but with some cross over.
There were parts where I totally forgot that my really really old friend wrote this and just enjoyed the writing, cause it's smart and concise and poetic without being flowery (as that makes me gag) and it was like being right there on the Main again.
There were parts that were incredibly sad and touching.
Everyone should read it.
