    sounds interesting, I need some new material

  1. I would be interested in this book. I like “coming of age” stories and ones that have psychological background. This is my type of book. Thanks!

    It sounds like it might be a tad depressing, but I used to read a lot more fiction, and just realized I have been stuck reading historical romances and self help books for the last year, and I could use a good book!

    This sounds lijke a book that I can add to my classroom library.

    I would be interested in reviewing a copy of this book because I teach high school psychology and this novel sounds like it would be a good resource to illustrate a number of introductory pscyhological concepts through a medium that would interest high school students.

    thank you

  2. The more reviews I read of this book, the more it intrigues me – interesting premise, good character development, and quality writing. I’d love to win a copy!
