Huckleberry Finn did not "sleep" his way down the river to get what he needed as does the main character in this book. After the author goes to a bit of trouble to paint Margo Crane as a fairly resourceful and independent character, she has her solve all her problems in survival by living with men using sex as payment. I got about half way through the book and finally gave up. Yes, she's only sixteen and perhaps we are supposed to believe her helplessness because of her age, but many a sixteen year old has taken care of themselves and even others through the ages with only as many resources as Margo has. Considering her supposed skills, she was not very smart or forward looking. Don't "dis" Huck Finn by comparing this girl to him!!
