You're welcome, Sareeta!!

I have actually just started it! But I'll be reading it over the weekend so should get it done soon.  I am liking it so far...

Anna's struggles are interesting and heart breaking at the same time.

Everyone always talks about how such a good read it is..my last year english teacher suggested I read it..but I read the syponis and it seems kinda lame..but I'm sure its a good book.. I will read it, sooon, when I finish my current "to read list".

I'm reading it at the moment and so far I like the novel.
 
The story itself is unusual and gripping. Anna's dilemma is portrayed with a great deal of sensitivity. The unique set up of having Anna prosecute her parents and Anna's mother being the defendant lawyer is great for building tension between the various characters.
 
I find the change overs to different points of view a little annoying, but overall, the writing is fresh and without cliches.
