A fantastic read. Though I'm a male in my 40's, not quite the target reader, I immediately got into the book and the main characters were very well rounded out, and one could immediately sympathize with them. It's an innovative narrative style with the diary entries and the story telling which manages to capture one's attention and fill you in on the background without you realising it. Even in her first book, Bel shows great command of the art of story telling. Highly recommended. While nominally aimed at teen fiction age group, I think it makes a great read for all ages.
