it was ok
bookshelves: genre-ya
Read in October, 2010

Meh-- great premise, haphazard execution.

7 only children, cousins & 2nd cousins to one another, are followed over the course of a year at various family events. It read like she was checking items off a list: anorexia introduced, anorexia solved; alcoholism introduced, alcoholism solved; coming out issues introduced, coming out issues solved.

Reading other reviews, folks seem to be quite fond of this author. Perhaps if I had started with something else, I would have felt differently about this. But I don't.
