Set in an extremely rough and violent neighborhood the story is about Mim, tough girl on the wrong side of the tracks who collects a “package” for her mother. I was completely absorbed throughout all of her mistakes and triumphs. We use cookies to give you the best possible experience. Check out the top books of the year on our page Best Books of Mim hardly dares to say her dreams out loud, but she fiercely wated to the idea of a Oh, man. Wakefield really has a knack for nuanced, genuine characters.

Slightly cheesy, but definitely a heart warming ending. Lola, the mysterious girl next door; Tahnee, the best friend though more love-hate, in favour of the hate ; Kate, the perfect, nice evrr but closet rebel I felt like the book had the right wakefiele of hope and despair.


The emotional relationships are bitterly honest. This is another book I was compulsively page flagging, trying to mark all of the amazing lines. What makes this book memorable is the outstanding prose and the loveable, rough around the edges characters. The voice is original, the characters are real, the language is startling and beautiful. And as the story progresses, the main character wajted about herself and her family too.

And Mim is just this really funny, dry 17 year old with wisdom beyond her years and this drive to rise efer her family’s crime riddled past to become something more. Book ratings by Goodreads. I can be a little bit of an over-thinker.

Now Mim has to retrieve a lost package for her mother. All Mim ever wanted was a way out of her life. Just think vokki it.

All I Ever Wanted

Like her protagonist, Wakefield plays with the reader’s prejudices. Her blind need to escape has kept her separate from the world around her, but what happens when she opens her eyes and really sees “her people”?

Mim, on the other hand, hates everything about this place. I remember near the start of the novel there was the mention of a noose at the watchtower. I think that one symbolism says everything. Her version of wanting to get out is so honest We witness the shifts in her perception of her family, her home, and her life, and her gradual acceptance of the person she really is.

She lives in a rough neighborhood where bright futures are the rarity, not the foregone conclusion. The writing style is easily accessible, with a distinguished use of voice.
