This was a snapshot into Emily's life. You don't know much about Emily, the focus is on unimportant things. Great amounts of detail are given to the every day struggle in this and I felt it made it a bit boring.
I would have liked to see more dimension of the characters, a longer intro to Emily and a bit more depth of emotion. It fell a bit flat.
NOTE: I receieved a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review
