This book is very funny. I found myself laughing out loud at some of the statements made by Chelsea. I would recommend this book even to some senior citizens (like myself) that have a 'young at heart' and spirit mind. I would not recommend this book for anyone pre-teen or young teen as it has many sextual statements and stories in the book.
Anne Tyler also wrote the Mermaid Chair which I loved. This book was a good read but I didn't think as good as the Mermaid Chair. It shows family interaction, sometimes funny, sometimes sad. It also shows how the family uses their stepmother, Beck for support, babysitting, caring for an elder member, etc. It also shows how Beck through questioning her role gets satisfaction by being needed.
This book was one selected for a monthly gay/lesbian book club. The book contains interviews with all of the top celeb-bear-ties. It challenges the conventional image of male beauty. It was interesting but will appeal mostly to gay men.
Into these seemingly hopeless situations, God brought healing in each case, someone who had been thought beyond help now lives a productive life for God. In each case, a life was changed forever. These heartwarming stories wiill inspire you to believe that God can do the impossible.
