I recommended this little lovely for December book club. Now, I want to go on record as saying that this is written at a high school reading level. A fact that normally irks me in books. But there's something about this book that spoke to me. That reminded me of a time in my own life and high school experience when I was searching for myself and seemed to be looking in all the wrong places.
If you need a quick, easy read (it'll take you one day over Christmas by the fire) - I recommend you read it this December as well.
