really liked it

This quick, easy read had me turning pages and staying up late to finish. Most characters are well-crafted, and while the protagonist's mother seems overly stereotyped, a story told from a teenager's POV makes this completely acceptable. I thought at first this novel might have ended up categorized as young adult simply because of the young protagonist (as, unfortunately, so many novels lately have tended to fall). As I read on, however, I felt myself wanting to go back and edit this book to encourage the author to rewrite it or an adult audience. The book *almost* makes there... and the places it doesn't quite get there are SO easily identified. As a young adult novel, it ends up somewhere near a Flowers in the Attic-type of read -a bit too salacious for the teenage set, a bit under-written for more advanced readers. Not a bad read by any stretch (I couldn't bring myself to give it 3 stars), it easily could have been better.
