Has anyone else read this one? It is painfully realistic and disturbing. It's a modern-day self-absorbed high school girl story in which the author does a beautiful job in sharing the voices of three distinctly different teenage girls. The author offers no easy answers and no judgements of the characters. I'm left thinking it is more of a Printz contender for Lord of the Flies type situation, but it is one that I believe we should all read.
