“Melina Marchetta is a fantastic writer. She has a beautiful voice, tightly woven, and characters that you care about. She writes YA romance (a little bit like Sarah Dessen) but takes it beyond that linearity of romance. She writes about family, relationships, growing up.
I've already read two of her books in two days and want to slow down because once I finish all her available books, I won't be satisfied anymore with the books that are out there now. Anyone who loves YA fiction (even though you might not be a young adult yourself) will love this book. ”
