really liked it
bookshelves: 2010, life, ya
Read in November, 2010

I thoroughly enjoyed this coming of age book - it totally tugged at my heartstrings and I found myself with eyes so filled with tears I couldn't read the words on the page.

I don't know if I would have liked it as much if I weren't feeling so lonely at the moment. I was totally relating to the main character and her lack of anyone to talk to and feeling like there really isn't anyone who cares (even when there is). It is so easy sometimes to forget our support system and feel all alone in the world.

I could have done without the not so subtle transformation to Christianity in the end, but that may just be me...
