I picked this up for book club. I was excited to read it because I knew so many people had read it in high school. I am glad that I didn’t have to read it back then, but I had to struggle to finish it recently. The story had too much of a lead in and didn’t become interesting until about halfway through. I had hopes for it, but then it fizzled out again.
This was not a book I would recommend, other than knowing the story for background stories. An online synopsis would do the job for that.
