Unlike some previous reviewers, I found the narration quite compelling. The author's story is presented in the author's own voice. She has a manner of brilliant understatement that, even when describing the more harrowing events, never loses its wry humor.
There's only one real character of note in this book, and that's Stacy herself. I share a similar socioeconomic background with her, also growing up in rural Arkansas, and I can relate to feeling like an outsider in my own skin.
The moments I enjoyed the most were her description of her college life, particularly during her freshman year.
