It must e o easy for me to list what I isliked about th ook, and rant about what little bitch Isadora is and how much I like her, but it 's so tha simple as that.
I 'm gla they wil be, I 'm gla there are plenty who are, but I know damn sure I was n't one of them.The plot: Isadora is the niece of the goddess Isis and the god Osiris.
Despite being the granddaughte of ancient Egyptian ods, Isadora is mortal, she ca grow old, she ill die, she realize it.
She is resentful towards her parents, her stepfather, her own mortality; when Isis announces that she is having another child, Isadora takes that as the final straw.
With her miscarriag, Isis is afraid that she wo n't be able to guard Isadora of any imminent danger, so she decides ( or rather, Isadora connives) to end her daughter halfway around the world, to her brother Sirus in San Diego, California.I know that the United States is a remarkabl new country, but Isadora 's opinion of it is pretty harsh.
It 's damned selfish, these parents and their new babies and wanting to have them is so " self-centered, " and " selfish. " Isadora 's also aghast at the fact that she has to work.
A mystery took a side stage to the antics of Isadora and her teenaged rebellion, her exploration of San Diego and its beaches, her interior decorating skills, Isadora 's enjoyment of her newfound freedom, which includes cutting her hair, dying it purple, and eating all the sugar she can stomach, and trying not to fall in love with Ry.The details of Egyptian myths were really well-explained, but they felt so completely out of place with the est of the novell.
I though her frustration of hate towards her unborn sibling and niece, as an only child for years and decade, I elt like my little sister was usurping my parents' attention away from me.
I 'm eve callin it was right, but I can empathize with Isadora 's anger towards everyone involved.It 's also really grating to hear Isadora 's adamant insistent that she ill never fall in love.
Isadora grows up, she does so far too quickly for my liking, but she goe to realise that she is wrong, that her fixed opinions may be ncorrect, that her arents are not as uncaring and selfish as she elieves them to be, that maybe being hurt is n't th goo thing, that pain is momentary, and happines is ecessary in the long scheme that is a mortal life.The Romance: There 's insta-love, but it did n't know me o much, mostly because Isadora is so determined to uppress her feelings completely.
Isadora comes to believe that she may be developing feelings for him ... and she runs away.
