This book left me feeling over-exfoliated, skin rubbed sunburn tight and a whisper from raw. But I'm all the better for sloughing off the dead skin. Choi's writing is exceptional, and the relationship between Jayne and her older sister June is devastating and tender. The mundane horrors of being irrevocably tied to your family never hit quite so hard or with such a compassionate hand. Like Choi's other books, this story is best for older teens or college students, especially those who don't mind a good emotional sluicing.
