This was a very dramatic read with a BIG emphasis on dramatic There were parts of this book that made me want to cry and laugh at the same time And while there were instances where I felt this way I feel that most the characters were hugely unrealistic and extremely clich√© Everything was so over exaggerated I will say that Helen's struggle with schizophrenia and the relationship between Stevie's grandparents are what kept me interested enough to complete this novel I could actually feel the attachment between the grandparents and their struggle to help their daughter who was mentally declining from this disease But unfortunately this was yet another book that left me with unanswered uestions and than slightly disappointed

I thought this book was dreadful I was attracted to it by such high ratings and the fact that it is set in the city where I live and in a thinly disguised version of a small town where I once lived This proved irrelevant because there is no sense of place or atmosphere in the writing or descriptionsThe story is a soap opera filled with angst and melodrama The writing is very simple with uite a few grammatical problems The author repeatedly writes Me and Zena or another character did such and such Like fingernails on a chalkboard The characters are good and evil stereotypes much too good or much too evil to believe The main characters' uirkiness is annoying and far fetched The dialog is unnatural and forced The story is completely predictable Every good character is rewarded every bad character is shamed and humiliatedUgh ugh ugh Terrible terrible book
