What a fucking nasty book. The main character is nasty, her friends are nasty, the older brother she looks up to is nasty, the neighbour she idolises is nasty and the whole book left a foul feeling.

The nice characters like her parents and the 4 year old are fucked on and the reader is left feelimg hopeless and sullied.

I didn't like it. I thought it would hae been a much better book if a lot less happened. If all the plot twists and extra storylines had been left out and it was left as a simple slow story about a girl growing up in the 80s in suburban Australia.
