I liked this. The minor characters were well done. I like it when they feel like real people. And the alcoholism was dealt with very well.

What I didn't think was dealt with well was Alys's struggles with self-confidence. I mean, I've been there, but it DOES get better as you get older and as you gain confidence in other areas of your life.
That was touched on a little--that she was self-confidence in other areas of life--but it didn't quite work for me anyway. (view spoiler)
