Customer reviews

My sisters and I all read this book at the times we were similar ages to Astrid, the protagonist. While she goes through a harrowing loss of innocence that I wouldn't wish on anyone, her voice resonates with anybody who has ever felt the loneliness and strangeness that can come with being a teenager, realizing that the world isn't quite as rosy as it seemed when you were a child. I think about this book often and it really was one of those important books that I will never forget.show more
