Read full description of the books:
After reading a couple of Torey Hayden's nonfiction books and absolutely loving them, I picked up this fictional attempt and am now very disappointed.
The story was obviously aimed at a young adult/coming-of-age audience. The story is told through the teenage eyes of Lesley, whose eccentrically-lovable but emotionally unstable mother behaves, well, in an unstable manner. I can't pinpoint exactly what bothered me so much about this book, but my guess is that Hayden, who is so good at taking someone with severe psychological issues and dissecting their causes and then helping to fix them, is instead trying to throw a lot of psychologically-damaging issues into one family and then show the after effects. If half the things that happened to Lesley's mother had happened to me, I would be pretty messed up--so where's the story there?
I can't say that this book was worthless because I really enjoyed the character development, but the plot line was just too full of tragedy to leave time for much else. I can't think of anyone to whom I would recommend this book.
