This book was like a nightmare the whole way through.
I read it all in one day.
Craftwise, I noticed the author didn’t waste words. Not a “was -ing” or “-ly” word in sight.
(Carol was one of my creative writing professors in college, and she taught me a lot about craft and making every word count. Ever since taking her class, a little buzzer goes off in my head when I read a book thick with “was -ing”s and “-ly” adverbs.)
Even though this was a hard book to read, I recommend it for teens and adults who have mothers, sisters, and/or daughters.
