  1. I thought this was a good book , but very sad. I thought Elinor was very strong and courageous to have survived her horrendously cruel , mentally unbalanced mother. I was not surprised at the end to find out about her sibling because there were hints along. Of course I was surprised to find out her mother died in the fire. The fact that Elinor still held conversations with her mother showed how psychologically damaged she was. When I happened to read the back cover of the book , I was shocked to find out that the book was considered a comedy! Not for one second did I find anything even remotely funny about this book.

    1. Leslie, I agree with you, but you are the only other person I read or heard that had the same feeling. I thought it very sad. I liked the ending and the fact that she was ready for that therapy. There were parts of the novel that could have been shortened. Not my favorite read, but not my least favorite either.
