A nice story, nice writing, but the plot is very meddlesome. I see no clear purpose and the book as a whole is like a machine of disconnected parts. After reading, my reaction was: So what? What's the point?
Personal growth maybe. But that growth is shadowed by a great many weird and, again, disconnected events which were finally connected by an also very forced explanation.
The writing is good, though, and I don't dislike Evie.
