I didn't like this book, but I did finish it. Very depressing. The storyline was sad, I guess, as every single person was depressed or had some sort of mental illness. I thought the idea of song reading was a bit strange too. I felt sorry for the main character, Leeann, as she was just a kid and everything seemed to be dumped on her, too much really for one person. Didn't like the way her sister was painted as always helping everyone, the storyline with the mother, etc. So depressing to the point where it lost me. Just not my type of book, I guess.
