Good book, well written. Reminds me of Darcy Steinke, who I also like.

It finally happened -- I found a book I cannot finish. I even mananged to get through "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," but I just couldn't do it this time. The characters are so underdeveloped I completely lost track of who was who. When Sara's dad said he was leaving but "Sylvia will come by and visit you," I thought "Sylvia who?" and had to reread the book. The only other mention of her had been 29 pages earlier: "[The package] was from Sylvia, his girlfriend. When she was in our house, she wafted around all pepperminty. She made me earrings. Crystal triangles, she said, carried love from the sun. I couldn't stand her."

I gave it almost another 40 pages before giving up -- Sylvia never made an appearance but two interchangeable street kids were introduced. I immediately picked up "The Colorado Kid" because Stephen King's characters are always so lifelike.

(It must just be me, because the critics loved this book.)

Hmm, if you've read "Don't Ask Alice" and enjoyed it, then you will most likely enjoy this book too. I didn't care for it only because it seemed to be very much like Dont Ask Alice. There really isn't a story line. There are just a lot of rambling pulled together sentences.It is a very sad and heartbreaking book.

Disturbing and sad. It made me think of all the young girls out there who don't have an adult in their lives to keep them sane. I loved the ending but don't want to think about what will happen next.
