I feel so bad for Evie Boyd. She seems so lonely and has a hard time fitting in and finding her place. I find the author is really good at character development and description.

Just started the book. I like how the author starts with the present then goes to the past. Getting a very Patty Hearst vibe!!

Yeah, it's different. It made me think of the beginning of a movie.

When I started reading this book, I didn't like it actually...It was the style of the author's writing and overuse of description that initially stirred me away. But I figured I would give it a chance nonetheless...and the more I read, the more I got into it!

Okay I am about 50 pages in and am really getting into it. My goal is to finish it this weekend. This working two jobs thing is really ruining my reading schedule. I feel like the author captured the vibe of the 70's. Just mentioning Aqua Net made me laugh.
