I just finished this book last night, and I absolutely LOVE it!  Violet's voice is real and true, and she really came alive for me.  I also am very impressed with the sense of place in the book--I was born in Florida and have lived in different parts of the state, and Dannette really captures the essence of the "Florida experience."  Definitely one of my all-time favorite MG reads!  I am just sorry it took me so long to read it!
