Interesting reprinting of a teenage girl's blog posts; gives an inside view of the war in Iraq. I was interested in the subject matter and the book is nicely "packaged". However, I was a bit disappointed that the book didn't have more depth and thoughtfulness. Yes, the subjects (war, peace) are quite serious, but the short blog posts from a teenage girl don't seem to delve very deeply. I think my expectations were too high. Plus, a blog post by definition is a short, quick piece - not the depth I wanted...
