This is a very, very, very fast book. It's a very "light" book, even with the topic. One could imagine the pages to be more heavy because of what Anna did yet it's not IMO.
I think this would be a great book to hand to someone who likes to read but isn't "hooked" although that person would need to be the kind of person okay with reading about this sort of thing. Even though Anna herself isn't met in the book and even though the suicide isn't front and center it's always there, in the back, hanging around, right in the readers mind. That's not for everyone.
I think I would have liked it better had there been more to it. With something like this, as serious as suicide, I like to have more meat to the book. Something to drag me in, keep me in without letting go, and keep me there until the end. This was kind of just flitting by and setting down for a second and it just didn't go beyond 'like' for me.
I will definitely look at the authors other books because I can see that I like her writing. I think I'd like to read an "adult" novel by her.
