Then the gun comes out.
This book gave me chills. It also gave me the same feeling as "The Glass Castle" by Jeannette Walls. You want to slap the parents at the same time you find yourself rooting for the kids. When the two sisters finally confront their mother, saying "We're leaving. You can stay if you want to," the reader applauds the courage of children in the process of being actively robbed of their childhoods.
There were some things, as in Walls' book, that placed her mother beyond the pale of redemption for me. There are questions I believe the author and her mother will, if not consciously, wrestle with for the rest of their lives. The author is a born writer and a very bright little girl. She has to walk a tightrope in this memoir and she does an admirable job. This is one of the best books I've read in a long time for the sheer courage and compassion of its narrative. The author deserves all the happiness she enjoys today.
Five Stars. Great Read!
