it was amazing

I stayed up all night in order to finish this beautiful book. It's such a huge accomplishment for a debut; it's gorgeously written, yet feels as if the writer is sitting next to you telling you her tale. It's told in a non-linear, non-chronological structure, but it moves fluidly towards a stunning climax that is at once heartwrenching and redemptive. The story is about what happens when, at twenty-five, having lost both her parents, Claire realizes she is 'nobody's important person.' The reader gets to watch as she builds her life from scratch. This book deserves to be widely read and wildly loved. I will be recommending it to all of my friends.
