Beautiful book

This novel, which details the coming of age of a young girl, was absolutely wonderful. It speaks beautifully about the confusion of childhood and adolescence, and the bonds we form and break in a lifetime. Kincaid is a master of words, which results in mesmerizing prose and living characters. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys immersing themselves in another world.
