I don't know how to express my feelings for this book but I'll try. The writing is gorgeous. There are 2 main characters. I loved one of them and really disliked the other, even though I did empathize with her. I was riveted. It's not a happy story and I finished it feeling a bit bereft. That may sound dramatic; but if you have ever lived through adolescence, college, depression, any or all of those ..,.and if you have ever felt like you don't belong you might have the same sort of reaction. I recommend this but with a caveat. Beware, it's harsh and difficult to digest.
