Loved this. I think listening to this on audio enhanced the experience for me--the narrator was fantastic. Her voice was affective and I was able to differentiate all the characters very easily.
Davey is a great character; she's prickly but loving; hurting and angry and desperate to reach out. Her thoughts and experiences felt so authentically teen and surprisingly relevant when one considers this was originally published in the early 80s; it has a timelessness that I think will carry over for many years to come.
This also abstains from delving into melodrama. It's certainly sad and definitely an exploration of griefbut in a beautifully subtle and understated way.
Highly recommended and I can't wait to see the movie!
