I really didn't like this book. Maybe others might enjoy the story, but I struggled to get through it and really did not feel anything for the main character (Grace.) I also struggled with feeling much for her friends, and found myself skimming the pages just to find out what happened so I could be done with it. Not a great read, but I'll leave a final verdict to your taste!

Good novel with complex characters. I especially liked the Conversation Guide at the end. Would make a good choice for a Book Club/Discussion group.
