This review is from: Just Like Elizabeth Taylor (A Small Town U.S.A. Novel) (Kindle Edition)
The things I liked most about this story are the characterization and voice. There's an outward feel of innocence and simplicity at first glance, but there's so much more lying right beneath the surface, and that's what made it beautiful, funny, and heartbreaking all at once. If I could ask for more, it would be for, well, more--I'd love to have been able to spend a little more time with Elizabeth (or Beth or Liz, depending on when we are) so it didn't go by quite so fast.
While the main character is only about 12, I think that readers who will appreciate and like the book most would be a little bit older. It feels like a nostalgic look back into your own junior high years, with all the good and bad that they brought with them, even though your own issues and problems back then were different than Liz's.
Well done, Lu Ann!
