The author did a great job of keeping the voice of the protagonist in the telling of her story while it adds that much more a special touch. Although Vada is overly dramatic, annoying and a bit on the bossy side she is just like all other girls - sweet, confused, hiding her hurt and having to grow up way too fast via the changes that come so naturally in this crazy world that we live in.
Definitely a good nostalgic read and one that will make you want to watch the movie even if it made you cry.
