Customer Review

on 30 July 2006
There's a theme of betrayal in this book. The teen-age narrator is abandoned by her family, and betrayed by piety turned perverse in the closed little world of her town.

But the betrayal I'm talking about is the betrayal of me, as reader, by the book, and by the reviewers who described it as "humorous," "fresh," "exquisitely written." I slogged through this bleak story with its coarse, mind-numbing language, watching and hoping for that promised humor, the exquisite writing. For my efforts, I came away feeling alienated and depressed. What a downer.
