This book surprised me. Written in seventeen year old girl first-person, it was hard to follow at first, but as the story unfolded I was drawn in. Every aspect of the heroine’s life and character are brought into focus, and zoomed in on, until the reader truly knows Daisy and “gets her”. The very real and frequent dilemma of growing up, making your own choices, and living with the consequences reminds readers (teen or adult) that no one is perfect, but that God can take difficult circumstances and turn them for good. Daisy learns that there is more to her parents than she knows, and they come to realize that what they have planned for her may not be what God has planned…but He always has a few ironies tucked up his Almighty sleeves.
