I think I could have liked this more if there was a set up or better editing. I felt like I was walking in to he middle of a book, or like the first couple of chapters were missing. The narrator uses a lot of truncated sentences and I spend so much time trying to figure out who is who and who is talking that I'm removed from the story. I just never felt any connections to the story or characters, and Emma's actions didn't match up with my perceptions. Of course, there wasn't any set up for the characters so I went from thinking she was about 17 at first, to thinking she was 20, then finding out she was 25. Meh, it was weird, choppy, and not a writing style that I favor.
