Shelves: fiction
Very well realized characters, very lifelike (ie, no tidy resolutions to any problems; no clearly definable plot).

This was given to me by my 8th Grade English teacher when my father had cancer. I had a hard time coping with his illness, and she knew my love of reading. It was a comfort to me at a time when I had no one to talk to or express my feelings. It's a bit scattered and out of order, like I was. A good novel with developed characters and complex emotional relationships.

I didn't like this book at all. It took me a long time to finish because it was boring and didn't have a great plot. The only reason I finished the book was because I was hoping it would get better. It never did. From reading the back it sounded interesting but in reality it really wasn't.
