Sad book about Ruth, living in a dysfunctional family. Matt, her older brother gets all the attention and love while Ruth is criticized. Ruth thinks she finally gets her chance in life by meeting Ruby, a special needs man. Their daily day to day life, that is about 3/4 of the book, give a special insight into their happiness and sorrows. The ending is shocking. This is not a happy book. It's not a love story with a happy ending. It is a book of reality, of the way some people live their lives. A book you will remember.
