This is a good survival story of a young girl as she grows into a woman under very difficult circumstances. The mistakes she makes are understandable considering her lack of adult guidance. She's what Katnis Everdeen (Hunger Games) would be in the real world. The narrator was excellent, was never apparent as I listened, as a narrator should be.
No, it's too much of a tween read for me.
The main character was too shallow and naive for her purpose. An "old soul" is wise beyond her years.
She sounded like a valley girl telling a fairy tale. Her characterization of the police detective was laughable.
I would not have continually referred to the dead vampire boyfriend as "my boyfriend". He had a name.
Maybe reading this book instead of listening would be better, but the main character was just too naive and shallow for her role.
