Oh, I don't know, I guess I liked this book okay. The depression-era protagonist has been sent to a girls' camp that turns out also to be a boarding school after doing a bad thing. We slowly find out what the bad thing is. As we begin to realize that 15-year-old Thea wasn't really responsible for the bad thing she gets involved with another bad thing, but with more agency this time.
The book is well-enough written and Thea is a believable character (except for one area of precociousness that I think is a stretch). The denouement takes forever, which is why I have perhaps a more negative view of reading Yonahlossee than it deserves.
