did not like it
Read from February 22 to 24, 2011

Not going to finish this one. The two main characters, a 12 year-old girl and a 50-something woman, are too cynical and misanthropic (at least toward the elite class, who is mostly who they are in contact with during the story). They have nothing positive to say about anyone. Meanwhile, they wax long on their life theories/philosphies that use alot of big words and ideas, but leave one feeling that people just suck. Not worth my time.
