    Very Touching....Too Relatable...Personally

    This book was very hard to read towards the end. This book taught me to let go of the hurt and you can keep ppl out of your mind but not out of your soul. It was very relatable to me and it touched me sooo much.

    Excellent--funny, insightful and moving

    Ms. Southgate has created a heroine who is fascinating--culturally, ethnically, personally and professionally. Her complex relationships with each family member feel real. Her dialogue made me laugh out loud and burst into tears. This author clearly knows the devastation of addiction in a close family. I read a lot of first novel fiction by women authors and this book is one of the best I have read in a long, long time. It will be on my holiday gift list for lots of friends.

    Short and read in only a day and a half but such a good book! The characters were something I could really relate to, especially between Josie and Daniel as I am going through some of the same things now. Such a great read. Very very touching

    A well written tome on a difficult and painful reality, addiction, and it's unquestionable effects on a family.
    I thought the characters were well developed and enjoyed that the story was told from all the characters perspectives, in
     their own "voices".

    A good albeit sad read!

    Great Read

    The story started a little slow, but I found it hard to put down.
