This is an instance of a book that should have been better than it was. The writing was good and the characters were very interesting and complex, but neither particularly likeable nor (more importantly) relatable. It's nice to see lesbian fiction which isn't a cheesy mystery or a cheap romance, but actually can pass for a quality literature, but general character weirdness prevented it from being a fun or very enjoyable read.
