liked it

I finished the book about 15 minutes ago now and I've been thinking about what I'd say. First off, Michelle is my friend. So that may skew this review some, but it may not.

I liked the book. I did. Michelle's writing is phenomenal and the bar by which I judge my own works. It's not right, but it is. Her writing is so lyrical.

And now I want my own fancy-pants camera. So jealous of Naomi for that one.

Ah, Naomi. I have a love-hate relationship with this girl. So much of the time I just wanted to smack her upside the head and down the other. But it's the mark of excellent writing to elicit such intense emotions in the reader. I felt every emotion and had to keep reminding myself to read what was on the page and not skip forward for that emotion to be released.

(view spoiler)

I have to say that the book did start to feel a little long. But that could have just been that it was kind of hot where I was reading it and so that was making me cranky. I did enjoy the book though. It's definitely worth the time invested in it to read.
