The book is cleverly written. I loved the first-person analyses of the main character’s emotions and descriptions of her locale. I know young people no longer refrain from the profanities that were considered taboo in my day, but the overuse of the “f” word in the dialog coming from the adults in the story makes the effort to be liberated and modern seem forced and out-of-place. Maybe well-educated men and women of culture explode with such vitriol in highly-charged emotional situations, but the steady stream of such language is in stark contrast to those who wish to present themselves as of good breeding. Those scenes in which the adults were interacting could have had great impact on the reader. Instead they came off as rather juvenile because of the choice of language.
