really liked it

I love reading books from local authors. I especially love when I enjoy the books. Allyson Condie, another BYU grad, has written a very real and raw novel that shows a sixteen-year-old experiencing real life issues. At first it looked like another "everything's perfect" LDS book, but Condie's main character, Juliet, experiences disappointments and unfairness just like we all have. A central issue in the novel is her sister's bulimia. I thought Condie treated the subject matter fairly and honestly. I liked this novel.
