Lifelike characters emphasize the important subject: men are not to be trusted. Fortunately, the author also makes the point that not all men are evil.
By means of a thoroughly involving tale of emotion and intrigue, the reader is warned of the dangers of trusting the wrong man. The author highlights the difficulties that can be involved in making the correct decisions in difficult situations. Through the dual first person narrative, the reader is encouraged to see the other person's point of view.
Parts of the story are told via diaries of both mother and daughter, allowing the dimension of time to add depth to the tale.
Overall, I found the story to be an interesting and enjoyable read, made especially believable by the familiar places I have visited and events that I also lived through. I would recommend this to teens and parents. Although I'm sure it is primarily aimed toward female readers, a male willing to empathize with the female point of view will also find this to be a worthwhile read.
This is not just for teens. Parents and teachers should read it too.
It is also a suspenful read and one that is well plotted. Since the alternating chapters are short, it is an easy read on an airplane or any place where there are constant interruptions and you don't want to lose track of the story.
Just enough characters in the book to be well fleshed out. Would be an interesting read for adults as well as teens. The author does not over-generalize about run-away teens; she just tells a griping story about one.
