I read once that it's not how many good books you can get into that's important. It's how many good books you can get into you. The thing about this book is that it gets into you. The details are very specific, and yet any person can see someone he or she knows in the book, or they have experienced something in their lives that they can relate to the experiences in this book. That is an indicator of a quality novel.
