Read on January 19, 2012 — I own a copy

I missed this book somehow in the last year, and all of a sudden in the span of one week everyone was talking about it. I downloaded a sample to the kindle and was hooked.

This book is the book for those little girls who grew up reading science fiction and fantasy, who were a bit outside of their peers, who were loners. This book is for me. And I loved the great use of historiography -- I have a wishlist chock full of scifi writers I hadn't even heard of thanks to this book. I know this year is young yet, but this is the best one I've read this year.
