I guess it isn't possible to give a book less than 1/2 of a star.

When I think of the absolute WORST BOOK I have ever SUFFERED through in my 40 plus years of avid reading this book jumps right to the top!

When I read a book I want at least ONE character that I can like, that I can cheer for, that I can care what happens to! This book did not have such a character - NOT ONE. It has a totally disfunctional family, none of which like each other - NO SURPRISE there!! No one would like these people. As I got further and further into this book I just wanted them all to die, (no that isn't HORRIBLE - this is FICTION REMEMBER) so that I could get them out of the book and so that the book could end! They were all so miserable anyway!

Don't read this book unless you are truly desperate for a soap opera gone REALLY BAD!!!!!!

I agree with Lynn...this was an absolute waste of a book. I too just wanted the suffering (mine as the reader) to end. I guess the only reason I kept reading was to see if it got any better. I stopped reading before the last few pages just because I didn't care what happened to any of the characters.

This one can be a tear jerker. Sad and realistic at the same time.
