I am not going to re-hash the storyline here. I am somewhat surprised at the number of negative reviews this book has received. I read this in a few hours, I was so drawn in. This is the first Alice Hoffman book I have read, now I am compelled to read more of her work. This is a wonderfully written book that exposes mental health and complicated family relationships. Shelby, the main character, is finely drawn, even if a little unlikeable. Her relationship with her mother is tear inducing. I cried and cried, it was absolutely so relatable. I loved this book. Netgalley.com graciously provided me a free edition of this book for an honest review.
