A wonderful addition to writers who came of age after the Vietnam War!
The book just didn't hold my attention. I found the characters to be mildly annoying and the plot predictable and cheesy. It reads as though she wrote it in a very short period of time and was trying to be "fun" and "deep" at the same time. Unfortunately it fails at both.
I don't really like to write bad reviews, but it does annoy me when something has so much hype attached to it and the product turns out to be disappointing.
If you insist on buying it, at least buy it used.

I'm afraid this novel didn't work for me. The characters were flat and it felt cliche. The biggest annoyance, however, was the way Baggott recycled her images from her poetry. Read morePublished on July 4, 2003
