This was an inspirational story about a teen dealing with the consequences of her mistakes, and growing stronger because of them. The story was wonderfully detailed, but a little hard for me to follow. That didn't prevent me from enjoying the book though! The older you are, the more I think you will be able to connect with the characters in this book, but I feel it would be a good read for almost any teen/ young adult.

"Small Damages" leaves No Damages

There's mild language (maybe 6-7 words of any kind throughout the whole book. The strongest I would consider is b----) and I think that the positive in this book outweighs the negative. FANTASTIC character relationships are established. The message of love and forgiveness is instituted in this book GREATLY, and Kephart does a fantastic job of delving into the human spirit. The people have depth and purpose and drive for what they do. And they learn to love one another.
