my new FAVORITE BOOK.
young woman who wants more leaves home; challenges include finding shelter and food and employment; later in book she returns home to discover her leaving has had devastating consequences, but she does what she can to resolve what she can and to heal. We sometimes forget that our choices can have unanticipated consequences, tho not usually as drastic as in this story. Gritty young woman.
This novel is a mix of Pride and Prejuice and Tess of the d'urbervilles. It is a book about loss, love, horses, family and outsiders. But mostly it is a book about the exploration of self and the cost one must pay in order to find who he or she truly is. I adored the heroine of the novel and often wondered what her next step would be as changes in her transformed it completely.
Meg Rosoff's writing shines. A strange story - part fairy tale, part romance. Will probably appeal most to older teens or adults.
Another great YA Meg Rosoff book
