This read centers around the facets of a girl growing up and a mother who longs for more than just the mundane. Growing up can be tough and at times it seems to be too hard for those kids who feel that they don't have "roots." Such is the case of Krista. Thirteen, that "magical" age where every pimple, every hair out of place and every move makes life seem too tough.
Krista longs to be accepted and is trying to find her place in this world. Of course, teen age drama comes with girls at age thirteen. Krista feels that her two sisters get all the attention and that she comes in last...way last! She also feels that her parents are out of tune with life. How can they just pack up and move to another place when her life is just about to begin.
But Krista moves on with the family hoping that she will survive a new school and new friends. Then the mom voice comes in (to be honest at times I was slightly confused by the mom's views).
This is a lengthy book coming in at 553 pages. The gist of this read is about a girl growing up, family dynamics and a lot of views from a thirteen year-olds perspective. This book took me back to my teen years. Being a teen is never easy, this book does an excellent job expressing that sentiment.
