Spectacularly good. This is a very in-depth description of what happens when two girls grow up together and then grow into themselves. It's a brilliant school story with appropriate school drama and goings-on and the characterization is beautiful. A really outstanding novel, which I expected, but also a very important novel that's got a lot to say about becoming who you are. I was a little nervous when I found out this spanned 4 years but the continuity is perfect and the characters superbly fleshed out (my favourite was The Gypsy). ( )
