The Ice Owl

The Ice Owl - Carolyn Ives Gilman I liked the protagonist's voice--she came across as authentically teenaged--but otherwise there's not much to recommend here. The writing is clumsy and the plot incoherent, full of both loose ends that never come together and anvilicious reveals. And the ending actively angered me. No, it is not the duty of children to stay with and support their abusive parents.
