Fabulous writing. Impossible to put down., 8 April 2011
Fabulous writing. Impossible to put down. This novel looks at a typical family coming apart at the seams. The parents hang on and do their best while their teenage daughter courts disaster and the younger sister tries to hang on to her happy childhood. The characters are nuanced and authentic and very believable. You feel like you're reading about your friends or family members. There's not a dull page in the book. I was moved and enlightened and very, very glad to have discovered this author.
