Listener Opinions

    " This book is about 2-2.5 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 2/3/2014

    " Not as good as I remember it. "

    " Reading for consideration for Association of Children's Librarians of Northern California's Distinguished booklist. My final assessment is that while the book has high additional value for a library collection, it is not worthy of "outstanding" status, for the several reasons. McCarthy has attempted to draw too many charachters, and there are too many extra plotlines that could have been cut back. The story itself is compelling-a young woman in Australia with an outstanding student achivement record is rocked by her father's announcement that he is leaving the family because he is in love with another women. A solid choice for young adults who may be trying to process the transition to adulthood, and the sometimes impulsive choices they may make along the way. "

    " Read this years ago, I do remember liking it.. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linnae | 1/3/2014

    " The unique premise grabbed my attention--what other YA book consists of the teen going on a road trip with her mother, and it's a positive event? However, it was just too slow to get going. Perhaps this is why other authors have steered clear of this particular plot idea. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire Frank | 12/5/2013

    " I wouldn't say this was a terrible book because it wasn't. This book had a good plot. McCarthy is a good author in the sense that she is able to translate the feelings of Rose onto paper well. However, the series of events felt unrealistic and left me puzzled in many areas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 11/28/2013

    " The main character and narrator, Rose, had a wonderfully strong voice. Lots of great family conflict - would love to see another book to find out what happens to everyone. "

    " Startlingly disturbing in some spots, but engaging, and a little sad, overall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ralph Hampson | 6/19/2013

    " Heard the author talk about this book - really enjoyed it - young woman finding herself in her early 20s and the drama and secrets that impact on all families - from her perspective. GOod read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie A. | 5/29/2013

    " I was excited to read about a road trip, but instead I got a straightforward drive full of flashbacks that got increasingly squicky. Big letdown. "

    " Eh, it was alright but a bit boring... "

    " 19 yo Aussie teen takes road trip with mom to visit dying grandmother and flashes back to traumatic events of previous summer when many things in her life changed. Good, thoughtful, funny read. "

    " Follows a young girl, Rose, on her roadtrip along the Victorian Coast, revisiting her past and old memories. A lovely book, but with a sort of empty ending. I love Maureen McCarthy's work though, her stories are so real and truthful. "
