Though perhaps not the best-written book I've read, this story was pretty interesting and I enjoyed Marjan's development. Her past is slowly revealed, almost as a side story, but I love how she recognizes what she needs to do and finally manages to do it. It has a good moral. I think the very best part of the book, however, was the "Lessons for Life and Storytelling" at the beginning of each chapter. These were by far the most interesting and fun parts.
Some scary things.
