I love the protagonist of this book. She is a quiet, thoughtful girl with concerns both typical and not, and she is definitely easy to relate to but not boring. The other characters are as memorable. Unfortunately, the characters were undoubtedly the greatest aspect of the book. The writing is merely okay and not as wonderfully descriptive as I would hope for a book about an artist-type, and I see no reason for it to be in verse. Furthermore, there are almost no aspects of the book that isn't predictable; it's obvious who the person who sent the membership subscription was, and it's also very obvious what the outcome of the art club thing would be. Regardless, this is a pleasant enough book with some really good points, though nothing original or particularly extraordinary.
