    Best book I've read in a while

    I just finished this book an hour ago. It made me cry! Poor Amanda. She never had time to be happy for herself. Always trying to please everyone else. I can relate to her though. I'm alot like her. I've had an eating disorder and depression. Great Book. I reccomend it to anyone.

    Great book!

    I just finished this book. I think it was a great book, but at some parts it was hard to follow. But I recommend it to anyone.

    Superb

    Bunting spins a good, if extremely sad story here. I believe the jacket speaks about how much the reader yearns for a solution that is not to be...the futility of it all...and that's very well captured in the novel. The characters are suitably developed, and the especially through the writing style (an omniscent view of the protagonist and the other characters, too), one understands completely the dilemma that ultimately concludes the novel. All together excellent.
