I enjoyed this book, however there was a large section which seemed very redundant while following the main character through her struggles and daily life. There was also a section that I thought was dragged out and gave more details than was necessary. Almost like the author deliberately did her best to put as many words in there as possible. I found myself skipping over pages once I got the gist of the content, since I felt I had already read it before. I guess about 1/4 of the book could have been edited out, and still it would have been a complete story. Otherwise, it was a satisfying read, with a very good and surprising ending. I really felt that the last 1/4 of the book was great, probably worth trudging through all the redundancy.
