really liked it
Read in January, 2011

I loved this book so much. I had to read it for a graduate literature course that I'm taking and I'm so glad it was assigned. I'm not sure I would have picked it out on my own because I've never seen it anywhere before. The story is a coming of age tale of a young girl who is hired to drive an elderly woman across the country one summer. The relationship between them as well as the inner and outer conflict they face make this a novel that leaves you with a good feeling when it's over. The character of Jenna is just written so well and I believe we all have faced some of the same struggles she faces throughout her young life.
