The primary character is a teenaged girl from a priviledged background. They author's grasp of the local people was pretty good but I had a hard time believing that this priviledged young woman would be able to do the things she did. It was not believeable at all especially to anyone who has teenagers.
Boring book. I wonder about his political views.
