This book was brill! It starts out like a Young Adult Fantasy book and actually ends as a Young Adult Fantasy book, but really a whole lot more. I'm suprised by Mori's forgiveness, especially with one scene that would seem to be pivotal and is just stepped over. If you're into Fantasy authors especially from the 1970s and 1980s, you'll love all of the discussions Mori has about the books she's read. The book reads like a diary, which is a wonderful change of pace. I would recommend this book.
