really liked it

A lot of very bad things happen to Jo in this short novel - and then, just when she thinks it will get better, it gets worse. Jo is somewhat of a trope but Walbert's writing pulls the story forward. The writing might be the most polarizing part of this; some might wish for an editor but stick with it. This could be characterized as MeToo for a 15 year old but it is more complicated, I think. Thanks to Edelweiss for the ARC. Try this for a literary novel with resonance.
