I love the use of description in the first few page pages and how there is little speech. It really gives the reader an insight into the environment the main character is in and how her mind works and what she is into, all in the first few pages! The main character also has a few interactions with other people in the first few pages, demonstrating how she acts around others and also her personality overall - she comes across to the reader as shy but also kind; she doesn't really interact with the shop keeper as she is too shy too but she isn't harsh or dismissive to them either, she gives them a smile which reinforces her kindness. The book is also set in the late 1990s so it gives the reader an idea of what life was like back then compared to what life is like now/what life has been like since then. It also shows how she goes against the traditional view of 'no sex before marriage.'
