This book rings false. Katherine Weber probably tried really hard to pull off this Alcott thing, but her "plot" and phrasing is quite off.

Katherine Weber is a novelist who successfully and miraculously achieves both depth and humor as she combines sophisticated fictional ideas with a story full of moving, compelling characters. This is not only a terrifically fun book to read, but skillful and profoundly intelligent. A lively romp somewhere between invention, playfulness, and very real sorrow. As a contemporary family story unravels, so, too, the reader is taken on a journey through allusion and time, back to the orginal "Little Women". The effect is mesmerizing. What a gifted writer. I can't recommend this highly enough! It is so rare to find a book that is erudite, full of luminous language and turns of phrase, and, at the same time, an engaging, lively, and brilliantly-constructed read.

You can't judge a book by its cover...a lesson to be learned once again. Boring pretentious rip-off. What on earth was Weber thinking? Too artsy-conceptual, no real substance.
