The description of the plot promises so much and fails to deliver. The plot is littered with impossible coincidences and unrealistic developments. The one that bugged me the most is the length of time it took the main character to read Lily's diary - anyone else would have finished it in one sitting! But Goodman drags it out with Meg dipping into the diary when convenient for plot exposition. Also - do you think seductionis the same thing as rape? Well, apparently Goodman does. Almost immediately you will realize that there is a "love child" in this story, and also that there is some significance in the fact that the book Lily wrote was "The Changeling." Sigh.
