Fantastic read!

When I bought this book, I admittedly expected something far different. I began reading only to find it laid out in the format of a young girl's journal. By this point; I was ten or more pages in and was becoming more and more intrigued by what this young girl - Lola Hart - had to say about the new world around her. I travelled with Lola through several years of her life, through dramatic changes of sweet princess Lola to Street Lola, through her struggles and through her emotions. By the last page I was left hankering for more, much more. I wanted to know even more of her life, to know how much farther she was willing to go to save her family and her life.
I beg of a sequel to this classic, or even a movie adaptation.
Fantastic read which provides a remarkably accurate insight into what could very well become New America.

Could not recommend this enough.
