There are so many ways this book could have gone wrong, but it didn't. I really felt for Maddie and her dilemma and could relate all too well to the bullying she experiences throughout the book. I liked that she had concerned adults who try to help her but she has to fight for herself. She's a believable character and the author isn't afraid to make things tough for her. I felt that one conflict was solved a little too easily, but overall it's a great book and avoids the modern cliches of teen sex/drug use/drinking as the cause of the character's problems.
Five prescient stars.
