bought it for the setting, loved it for the story
on October 21, 2011
Unlike the previous reviewer, I've never met the author. But I feel like I went to school with her protagonist, and lived in that home town. Her characters are flawed, caring, snarky, superficial, kind, lazy, ambitious, giving, self-reliant, self-centered, brave, and liars -- in other words, they are carefully drawn and multi-faceted -- real people. The story carried me on like a swift-running creek, with something new just around each bend. Highly recommended.
BTW I read this on Kindle, and only found ONE typo in the whole book! Kudos to the editor/proofreader, as well as the author for caring about quality.
