This book is a bit of a hefty read for young, impatient readers, but just right for readers of ANY age who like to get into their books and stay there for a good while. Almost the entire story is taken up with a journey, as Tilja and three others travel through a dangerous country they don't understand to search out help for their homeland. There are a few elements of danger, but nothing young readers can't handle. Tilja is believable and likeable, and she has a wonderful relationship with her cranky old grandmother. In the end she comes to realize that she doesn't need to be like the rest of her family, she's perfect the way she is. I liked this book as an adult, and I think it's just sort of book I would have greatly enjoyed when I was a young teen, as well.
