First off, this is nothing like I thought it would be! It's about a teenage girl living in a Mennonite society in Canada, so I presumed the community would be like the Mennonites I'm familiar with here in Michigan. NO WAY! The main character smokes, drinks, swears, does crazy things like typical teenagers do. I don't know what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn't anything like this. Basically the story revolves around her teenage angst and her relationships (or lack thereof) with her dad and boyfriend and a couple of other people. A very strange book, I don't know if I'd necessarily recommend it but I wouldn't say it was bad either.
