The characters are underdeveloped and the writing is largely disjointed.
The verbal abuse was certainly there but not to the point of traumatizing Sonnenberg, more to the point of making it difficult for her to get along with her mother.
It's not exactly the most wonderful kind of "interesting", but it is the only positive thing I can say about the book as a whole.
