A very touching and endearing tale about growing up. While the exact detail are not relatable to everyone, (how many of us grew up in wealthy families with famous parents, for example?) the trials of approaching adulthood apply to all of us.
Reading the story of this young woman certainly took me back to my days in high school and that delicate time of becoming a woman. The pressures of sex and the conflicted way society views it.
My only real complaints were mostly for minor things. Nik's (the boy friend) outfit for the party was never revealed to the reader. It was to be a big surprise but then it seemed to be forgotten. Not even a further mention of the dreaded suspenders.
My other complaint was that there were parts where the writing began to feel overly-simplified, almost like it was taken right from the first draft and not refined. Both of these complaints are minor and did not detract from the overall enjoyment of the story.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a coming of age type story. It not only deals with the usual trials, but also brings about the importance and meaning of family.
