2.5 out of 5

Confusing, weird and descriptive, I really have no idea what to make of this book. I'll have to ruminate on it before figuring out how to word my review, how to describe the sheer oddness contained in this debut novel.

Audra (Unabridged Chick) Can't wait to see what you think of it -- I'm having fun and yet, I'm totally bugged by it, too!
