I enjoyed the book, although I wish I had read it prior to having read "Crooked Little Heart." Anne Lamott has become one of my favorite writers, and the way she develops characters is wonderful. If you are thinking of reading this book, I would suggest you read this first and then go directly to "Crooked Little Heart," which I would give five stars. These make a fine pair for readers.
