Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quirky and sincere I had heard a lot about this book before reading it, but it still surprised me! Jeanette grows up in a very insular world, but one she loves and feels appreciated in...until she falls in love and that world rejects her. Her confidence and determination to be herself shine through. Filled with peculiar situations and vivid details, this was very enjoyable.
