I'm about 1/2 way through the book and I really like it so far. Hard to put down. However, (there's always a however) it distracts me when authors write from a child's perspective but don't change their language or rhythm at all. A 13 year old girl does not have the same vocabulary, tone, or language pattern as a 50 year old attorney.
FINAL THOUGHTS: WOW. Cried for 16 miles after this one.
