A Step from Heaven - An Na

I feel like I could have enjoyed this book, but the time skipped around so much... Any time a conflict was introduced, it would be erased at the start of a new chapter. This book is 154 pages, and it covers fourteen years! As a result, I couldn't connect to the main character, Young Ju, or her family, or her problems. I never had a chance to get to know her because she changed so often, as did her family and situation. It just didn't work for me at all. I mean, I guess I didn't hate it, but I can't really think of much I liked about it either.
