How had I not read this before?? I loved this book! I think I had a different idea in my head of what the book was about, which made me not read it. It's hard to describe. It starts out with a war between those at the school and the townies, but it morphs into a story of Taylor, searching for family and her identity, and the story of kids who lived on the Jellicoe Road years before. The way they combine and weave together is magical.
