Halfway through it right now, and (as usual) find your insights on it spot on. I am particularly struck by the way she structures the paragraphs about gossip -- sentence after sentence -- that bring to mind a movie montage of the same.

The parallels of the girls lives -- in their feelings, particularly, of being on the cusp of something big, and of feeling isolated because of it (though it plays out so differently) are even more...I don't know, what's the word I'm looking for? Prickling, because I know Amelia ends up on the side of the road...and I'm halfway worried our heroine might, too.

And every moment does feel like a turning point. I'm peeved that I have non-reading tasks to do today, and won't finish this until I get home!
