  • Not really enjoying this book so far. It seems a little disjointed. Girl's mother is dead, father is a boxing trainer and is away living with grandmother, who lived through World War II and the holocaust. But for some reason this girl seems to be focusing on lucid dreaming, in a way I guess trying to bring her closer to her mother. But really, it just makes the girl seem weird, and for this reason she cannot seem to hold on to any friends except Mona, who is also a little different.So i did like [...]

  • This novel captures the true awkwardness and uncertainty of the teenage years. Although the protagonist feels herself to be drifting in isolation, it is clear that her friends, too, are struggling with questions of identity, fears about the future, and painful pasts.
