Likeable Characters, Bad Writing, Bad Performance

Author does not seem to know the definition difference between simple words like "and" and "but." It feels like the author was writing with a thesaurus with no understanding of context of situation and word choice.

The author has the main character write in a journal with seemingly no other purpose than to communicate feelings and information, 90% of which the author already told us and made clear so very repetitive.

There is a very annoying fairy-like musical noise played throughout the performance possibly as a way of signifying a new chapter.

The narrator had very bad timing and tone, etc. interpretation was not good.

It felt like the author was writing about a lot of things she knew nothing about such as ranch life, riding horses, young adult vocabulary, independent women, etc.

The book really needs a good editor or a different editor and a better performance.

Overall the book came off as very hokie, which is too bad since the book tried to address some very important topics.
