The only thing that got me through this book was the author s strong diction and beautiful prose The book is extremely abstract, with no set plot There is no set conflict or climax It is of a journal or diary told by several people, another interesting aspect of the style. A bit boring Not very interesting charcters About girl abandomed at mean relatives place Country in South America vs London Growing up This story takes place in the Caribbean where generations of a family live There is much despair in this book and told from the perspective of a girl growing up in a family where she is not appreciated or welcome particularly after death of a parent.
