A Respectable Girl by Fleur Beale.
Yet another library find. This one comes off the young adults shelf. I quite like a lot of young adult authors actually - the quality gives me hope for the kids coming through.
And I have to report, I failed! As I feared, I was unable to read more than about 30 pages of The Butterfly Effect. Even those 30 pages took me the better part of 3 days to struggle through. I found it clunky, hard to follow and with no direction. Sorry!
