I agree this book needs one more proofing before it is complete, but otherwise, it was a great young adult novel.

The story follows a very put-together (and slightly stoic) 16 year old girl as she matures through adversity. It explores themes on family, romantic love, and religious faith, and how they may affect controversial (but otherwise wonderful) teens in small-minded, conservative American towns.

This book has some very gothic notes to it, and fans of Bronte's Jane Eyre will be pleased to see a modern take on her Lowood.

I did have some concerns about whether some of the characters were fully developed, and there were a few anachronisms that gave it a disjointed feel (seriously, what teen uses the word "louse" these days?), but altogether, this is an interesting story that focuses on contemporary teen problems, and I enjoyed reading it.

I'm about 80% through, and so I write this review without knowing the ending. My fingers are crossed for it to be a happy one. I love this character so much and I would hate for this to end badly for her.

I wanted to give the book 5 stars, but it honestly needed one more edit before being made available to purchase. There were just enough word usage errors to be distracting. Too many to just ignore, but not enough to ruin the book. I hope this author writes more, but I also hope you have someone proofread for you next time.

I still love it. If you have ever had a feeling of attraction to a member of the same sex, if you have ever wondered whether homosexual thoughts, desires, and actions are the same thing, whether any of it is a sin, if you've ever had any internal conflict about any of this, or ever wondered about those who had, you need to read this.
