this is a book of short stories. Few of them are developed well and seem a bit haphazard. There is one short story that has three chapters. This one is great, however, I think it could have been developed into a full novel. Lee's potential shows in this story, more than the others, I just wish it were a LOT longer. I would like to read full length books of hers, as I think they must be better.

Some of these stories were good but most of the time I found it hard to engage with most of the characters.
