Unlikable main character
Not up to Emily Barr's usual very high standard. Normally she will give us an interesting cast of characters who we begin to care about and want to learn their secrets, which are beautifully written twists and turns in the story.
In this case, the main 17 year old behaves like an obnoxious spoiled brat. Everyone falls over themselves to help her, in more and more ridiculous ways and she pushes everyone away without showing any signs of learning from the experience.
Her 'job' really got on my nerves. She was far to happy to have found herself a 'job' and started to look after herself, as if it was proof she could do this on her own. The fact it wasn't a paid job, that the people around her were paying for the privilege to be there didn't seem to bother her. She will push everyone in her life away, allow them to believe she's dead, but will still rely on them for major financial support for her ridiculous whims.
I kept waiting for her to learn from the experience as the secrets revealed themselves. I was left disappointed and irritated.
