Deerskin - Robin McKinley
Thanking a friend for catching me before I read very far into this one.

This book has been on my to-read list for so long I hadn't really checked out reviews or content very thoroughly. I really need to do that before I read something.

Apparently there is subject matter I really wouldn't be comfortable with in Deerskin, mainly rape and abuse, neither of which are handled well. Glad I was able to quit this one before I got into that, even if the prose is very lovely.
