Well hmmmmm This was a lovehate teeter totter sort of book for me Some elements were reasonably believable and engaging but not evenhandedly across the board nor with any sort of consistency Portions of the story touched me deeply and drew me in emotionally yet other segments left me feeling detached andor disenchanted I couldn t rectify the ages of the two younger sisters Sal and Troo with their actions especially not for the era And uite a few people places and scenes felt over sensationalized andor over written Not to mention the story was overloaded with just about every sort of dysfunction and or deviancy imaginable compacted and compressed into one short summer and one little neighborhood What are the oddsOn the flip side it s uite an imaginative story Fast paced and entertaining The sense of time was strongly present In part due to Sal being an unreliable narrator the murder mystery element kept me guessing until the end Plus the unreliable narrative made for some good laughs and hilarious recitations along the way Overall not the greatest coming of age drama mystery chick lit novel I ve ever read but far from the worst Three Stars
