I LOVED this book...there's something about Margo & her shyness, her confusion, her melancholy, that would seem to be a turn-off but she winds up being a genuinely moving, intelligent, worthy hero. Unusual theme for a teen novel - a shy girl's quest for acceptance at a snooty private school, being bounced from her obnoxiously slick roommates, her goony but sweet classmates & TWO very unlikely-seeming romantic interests. One being absolutely right, the other absolutely wrong. Margo is absolutely unable to identify and/or fight off her enemies in the beginning of her story, but her growth is both striking, heartening and REAL. Once again, I loved this book! It stayed with me long after I put it down...for the first but not the last time. A teen novel with a most unusual slant.
