The first half of the novel which detailed Gemma's troubled childhood was very interesting. The second half which had to do with her "adult" life was filled with irrational and unexplainable character decisions and lackluster plot points.
The only thing I found a bit jarring at first was that the narrator's voice sounded too old to be a 10 year old girl, and there was no attempt to make the voice sound younger. I kept picturing Angela Lansbury speaking instead of an adolescent girl. However as Gemma got older, the difference in age between the voice and character became less bothersome. But overall it was a good performance.
