I struggled to adapt to the voice(s) of this book, at first--the style is a little juvenile in the beginning, purposefully. Having just read something distinctly feminine and more mature, it was a bit of a shift, and I wasn't sure I was going to like the book, but I found myself curious about what would happen with the characters. I got used to their voices quickly once I picked it back up, and I found I enjoyed the story quite a lot. Juli and her family are lovely people. If anything, I thought it was a little short.
