If you like to know the nuts and bolts that make your characters work, this may not be the book for you. Rendered in first person, the novel describes the action and internal dialogue of the main character-- who is this book's biggest problem. It is impossible to determine which of the narrator's memories or claims is fantasy, reality, or drug-induced hallucination. This unreliability makes for a shifting experience in which the reader is constantly wondering which details are significant, and which give a key to the real back-story. One wonders how a person can have loaded her system with so many drugs at such a young age and been subjected to so much horrific abuse yet still function, even at an impaired level.
I finished this book still unsure as to which version of the back-story was real.
