it was amazing
bookshelves: adult-fiction

I loved this book. At first I thought I would not like it because it would be too sad--the main character was part of the California foster care system until 18 years old. However, she was so quirky and facinating that I wanted to keep reading. I thought this book was a very realistic except the ending of the story was not explained enough. It was like this character suddenly became mature, and her metamorphis during this process needed just a little explanation. I knew where she was coming from, but I wasn't sure she understood what she had to do and why she needed to do it. The most delightful part of this book was the beautifully written prose. Language was specific, picturesque, and concise. I can't wait to see if this author writes another novel!
