This story has spirit, humor, and verve, and lessons to be learned. It has the sweetness of a first romance, and the rollercoaster of emotions when faced with staying true to yourself or to the mold someone else is trying to put you into, even when it’s well-meaning, and maybe, just maybe, being brave enough to be yourself anyway.
There is soooo much wisdom in this book, told in a no-nonsense, listen-up girlfriend kind of way. ... This is one of those books that you need to keep, highlight, and return to for affirmation as often as needed.
This novel starts out with a line that could be the start of a great mystery or thriller, but this is not that kind of story. It's a slow-moving, in depth character study of human nature and the complexities of relationship dynamics. It shows how people are apt to rationalize and justify crossing a moral line to suit their purposes.
