I loved this book. It was very unique, add the story was so interesting. I loved the characters and plot, and the author's writing style. Highly recommend this novel.
This book pretty much has it all - a great premise, thoroughly explored; realistic characters and situations; twists with maximum impact - with a bow of great narration on top!
This book steers clear of the fantasy land that dominates many YA contemporaries, which I greatly appreciated because it allowed the author to more fully discuss what would happen to this character and those around her in a thought-provoking way.
My quip comes with the main character not always making decisions I agreed with. She is supposed to make mistakes - which I love, and makes the story more real - but there was a portion where I didn't feel or understand her motivation.
I also couldn't help comparing this book to Zevin's more recent trilogy (All These Things I've Done, which I HIGHLY recommend) which was longer and with more of a wow factor (because of the setting) that this book lacked.
Greer was an ideal narrator - she didn't stand out, but in a good way. I was just immersed in the story.
