The Given World by Marian Palaia
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This book really did not grab me. The main character is a hot mess. Although she is interesting and complex, she's lost and not really able to tell her own story. This is balanced out a little bit by some alternating chapters that are told from the perspective of other characters who are trying to explain how they see the protagonist, but the author gives up using this narrative method about half way through. The subject was interesting but it didn't feel like it really went anywhere.
