This book was okay. I bought it on impulse and thought it was a rather dull read. Kept hoping that it would pick up at the end. Maybe someone else would like it better than I did.

The book is categorized under fiction, & I do hope that is the case & that it is not semi-biographical. The mother in the book sickened me---in fact when reading this book it constantly brought back to mind Julie Gregory's "Sickened: The Memoir of a Munchausen by Proxy Childhood" (which is sadly, an actual memoir).
It is bad enough to set such a poor example to a child, but to inflict the same on them by means of verbal abuse is inexcusable.
The book seems to end in an odd way until one contemplates the symbolism of it.
