I understand how a child's perception of an incident can be so far from the truth. It wasn't an awful book, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it.
A couple gxrden plot points dead end, but on the whole, this is an emotionally compelling story. Maybe because I know what I was like at 18, and since I was a fairly mature and serious 18 year old, I wonder if I could have done what this 18 year old did.
