I don't often read YA fiction, but I'm glad I grabbed this one. It was well-written, fairly fast-paced, and (IMO, it's been a long time since I was a teenage girl) very true-to-life. It was basically the story of a year in the life of a 16-year-old girl in a boarding school in the Highlands of Scotland. The reader is given a glimpse of the trials and tribulations (and some of the good stuff, too) of being a teenage girl. All of the issues are very relevant for 'now' - bullying, unprotected sexual activity, friendship, family issues, isolation, to name a few. The protagonist (Rachel) is likeable, her ambitions are admirable, and she makes a good role model in most respects.
I'd highly recommend this book to just about anyone of the female persuasion. I really think it's WAY too 'girly' to appeal to male readers of any age, but it might be good for the fathers of teenage girls, as it gives a good glimpse into their lives.
Note on Kindle formatting: Very good to excellent. I can't remember offhand noticing any errors or issues.
