A girl friend of mine loved it. I thought it was trash. About the only positive is that it didn't take long to read.

As with so many books somewhere in the middle I'm not sure I want to continue reading. But I'm always pleased when I do push through to find a solid ending.

This novel could just as easily been called Things Fall Apart (I always think it's a shame that title's already been taken) or "Marie F***s Up." Marie isn't really bad, or she doesn't mean to be, but she certainly makes bad decisions. Six years ago, she made a bad decision that landed her in prison. Finally out of prison and employed as her childhood friend's nanny, she makes a chain of bad decisions (none of them her fault from Marie's POV) that form the plot of this novel. It was a quick, fun read -- a train wreck from which I couldn't look away.
