This book is as confusing as it is flowery and pretentious. Overall, so much was not in my taste, but I wanted to give it a try.
Mila is an orphan, aged out of the system. When she turns 18, she goes to live on a farm, teaching 9 year old Lee another orphan. Lee’s foster parents run a farm and take on many foster children, then employ other former foster children to teach them.
Mila has feelings on insecurity and inferiority, that rule her every move and thought. She lacks any confidence in herself, and bases her self worth on how these new people take to her.
There is lots of ghosts and hauntings, spoken as though they are everyday occurrences. I didn’t love that.
I had a hard time connecting to Mila and to really anyone in the story. I liked her flashbacks, where we find a small amount of her back story, but that was the highlight for me.
I wanted to like this book but it fell so flat for me.
