Normally I apologize if I DNF a book, but for this one it's not going to happen. I'm not a prude and I can swear like a truck driver, but I found the writing in here to be pretty vile and disgusting. I understand that it's part of the story line, but honestly did I need to read the word pussy (Not the kitty kitty meow kind or tree) 6x by the 40th page. Did I really need to read a description of the uncles stuff hanging out of his underwear down to the color, shape, and what fruit it resembled? I honestly did not think it was an integral part of the story, but if the author was shooting for vile than she hit the nail right on the head.

The story content was all over the place and jumbled. Where the point of the story was headed, I haven't a clue. To me it felt like it was going nowhere. By the 50th page I couldn't have given a damn anymore. Not one of the characters appealed to me and they all seemed to be written the same way. I didn't care by that point, but I kept reading. Not soon after I became disgusted and flung the book across the room. It's a good thing I'm able to get rid of it at paperbackswap because if no one wanted it, I was going to use the pages as liners in my daughter's rabbit cage. Crap belongs with crap!

This story was full of energy and the main characters made it come alive, but I must admit it has a lot of UN-necessary cuss words and sexual innuendos.
The author particularly liked cuss words that took the Lord's name in vain, and it seemed as if she deliberately did this as a shock factor more so to the reader, as they added NOTHING to the storyline. She also alluded to lesbian sexual tensions between young cousins that again, did nothing, for the story plot and just made the story somewhat distasteful for me. Aside these few parts towards the back of the story it was a good piece of writing.
