I found this author to have a very good writing style. Very easy reading and found this book very interesting. The underlying stories are really a book within this book. You get to really care about the characters and feel what they feel. You feel optomistic when they do and scared when they do. My favorite "voice" was a tie between skeeter and abeline. I would love to see a sequel to this book picking up where their lives left off and of course years into the future where we believe things have changed. I would definitely reccommend this book and would definitely read this author again.
