really liked it

Finally after all the books i've been picking up this year..this one kept my attention! I was very much impressed with Shaila's writing, as one critic put it, she's a "word artist." Such beatiful passages, yet not so illustrative/descriptive that you get lost in the dialogue. Kind of had the emotional elements of P.S. I love You, which I also enjoyed. I found the ending to be an empowering move by the author. Loved it! Putting on my Social Work hat, I was intrigued by the dynamics of the main character and her neglectful mother and how that impacted her life journey. Can't wait for the upcoming book readings!!
