All kinds of adjectives I wouldn't have expected to apply to this book apply: sparse, stylish, unique, lush, heartbreaking, messy, gorgeous, real. This is a writer with something to say and her protagonist knows how to say it, never too much and never too little and always in her own way. You will never forget her or her world.

Woah. What did I just read? I guess the highest compliment you can pay a book is to say that you walked around all dazed in real life afterwards. I put this off for such a long time because it had such a "buzz" I thought it was an adult book (it's a teen read. YA. In with all the vampire crud. The world is mad) and I thought it was Good For You. I was expecting Michael Ondaatje x Anne Frank and I got Narnia, Canticle For Leibowitz, Famous Five, Lord of the Flies, Judy Blume, and Wrinkle in Time. All written in the style of Meg Cabot or Rachel Caine, ignore that. Also ignore the world's worst-named heroine "Daisy", there was never a less Daisyish woman. I'm amazed by the brevity of this writer, it's really only a few lines describing a memorable love story, a few more lines for somebody's anorexia, but the important things are all there. It's a classic.

Not bad, but pales in comparison to John Marsden's Tomorrow series.
