My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book takes place in Kansas, my home state, and immediately paints an extremely bleak and depressing picture of the landscape and the people, so we didn’t get off to a very friendly start. However the more I read the better I felt about the story. Cassie, the main character, is an intelligent and thoughtful girl at an emotional cross roads, and I became rather invested in her story. I really enjoyed the excerpts from her notebook, and the poetry was beautiful. The writing was well done and even a bit poetic itself, if a little unpolished at times. As I approached the end of the book, however, I noticed an uncomfortable trend, and the author deals you a terrible blow, which seemed entirely inappropriate to me. I really felt betrayed by that ending, and I don’t mind saying I was a bit miffed.
