While many of the things that bothered me early on continued, many also got better as the book went on, and by the end Chime had sort of redeemed itself. Chime is a YA fantasy story, told from the point of view of a young woman, Briony, who believes herself to be a witch. Briony has spent a great deal of her life taking care of Rose, and even gave up going away to school partly to take care of her. Briony resents this, and resents her sister. We know this, because she spends a large portion of the first two chapters telling us how much she hates Rose and just about everything else, including herself. What we see of Rose is what Briony sees.
