Eleanor was such a captivating read. To be able to have a glimpse into both the mind of Eleanor and the world she is constantly thrown into is very intriguing. I loved the way the author set the scene; it felt as if you were in her world as well. One could feel the sadness and rejection Eleanor felt as her mother alienated her. Though it took me a long time to finish (my fault, I suck at remembering to do it now) I enjoyed it very much!
