For the most part, I liked this book. I thought the author did a good job of world building, and I especially liked the way the story drew me in with its portrait of a young girl dealing with a situation that she thinks is one thing--her mother's hoarding problem--that turns out to be something quite different. I also liked the relationship between Nali and Garrett and enjoyed watching it develop. The author does a good job of describing the changes Nali undergoes and makes the reader care about the decisions that she has to make.
What detracted from the book, though, were the grammatical errors, the punctuation problems around dialog, the occasional misused words, and stray typos throughout. It's a shame really, because the story has a great deal of potential, and the author has created characters the reader cares about. But the errors were a big distraction. I certainly understand the temptation for authors to self-publish these days, but a professional copy editor can make all the difference.
