She jumps around between grade school and high school like she just remembered a story from an earlier time. Apparently she encountered every sex pervert that take a subway; kind of hard to believe.

Enjoyable, honest, and written with a very solid voice. Some stories may stick with you. The flow of the book overall feels a little wonky and jarring, but that doesn't detract from the stories itself. Really enjoyed it.
