Really nothing about this book did it for me, not even being set in my beloved mountains. Too much teenaged angst, convoluted family stuff, dragged out plot, Lolita-ness (without Nabokov at the pen). There was not a single character I could find footing with, except maybe Thea's pony. Big disappointment.
