It is a book that leaves the reader appreciating simple things such as music and popularity which many seem to understand or even give credit despite the considerable effort used.

Tiffany having grown up in such a community makes an excellent author to bring out these issues. Her style is one that is meticulous and includes a considerable number of lessons for the reader.
