Not having any real background on life on the island of Samoa, I found that aspect of this book really interesting - learning about every day life on the island, both historically and in modern times. In particular it was interesting to hear about relatives and friends of the narrator who'd moved to New Zealand or Australia and couldn't face the "backwards" life of Samoa again. The story follows a teenager named Alofa Filiga and some of the experiences she has are not quite how my teenage life was - yet in some ways she's a typical teenager just like teenagers the world over. An interesting read.
