The entire novel goes from Anna's point of view in the first person, and author Stacey Trombley does a meticulous job of explaining every step Anna takes and even justifying it from the mind of a young girl. My favorite Anna is at the end of the book, sure she was still an "outcast" and people had negative things to say about her still but she just let it roll off her shoulders. Also, there is no attempt to get her any kind of therapy. He treats everyone around him like a child and constantly tries to diminish and control everyone in his family. Once again I found myself loving this style of writing. Hope, love and devastation.
He was protective and caring and that really warmed up my heart, especially when Anna accepted all his actions.

The many side characters stand tall and add in meaningful elements to take Anna's life where it deserves to head. She was bullied by her peers, as well as by her father. So I lie to him. He treats everyone around him like a child and constantly tries to diminish and control everyone in his family. So much potential there. The plot was really all about Anna, and her starting her life over. The only thing that really bothered me, and the reason for 4 stars instead of closer to 5, is the repetitiveness of Anna's thoughts.
