It was an Oprah book club choice, and it received good reviews from plenty of people, so your mileage may vary from mine :-)

I wasn't a fan of this book....thought this book was depressing and overwritten--with high drama and not a break for the reader, with the calamities befalling the young protagonist. Not to say this isn't what life is like if your mother is a narcissistic psychotic of some kind.....

It does expose a very dysfunctional mother-daughter relationship and what amounts to serious abuse of a child; adult children of bipolar or otherwise mentally ill but functional parents might find some true chords here. It just didn't work for me at the time I read it.

This book was a different kind of adventure.
