Alice Hoffman's The Story Sisters
This may be Hoffman's best novel to date. Of course, I've absolutely hated every other Hoffman book I've read, so that's not saying much! I did mostly like it--it's about three sisters and their secret language and secret made-up land and how they grow up and are damaged and whatnot. I do kind of hate that Hoffman made the characters have the last name Story, so the title is literal instead of metaphorical--it's just cheesy. Otherwise a pretty good read. B+.
