Told in alternating chapters, Sleepwalking in Daylight focuses on the lives of Samantha Friedman, an unhappy stay-at-home mom, and her adopted 17-year-old daughter Cammy. In search of her birth mother, Cammy has come to believe she doesn't belong in the Friedman family and turns to goth, sex and drugs. Samantha feels trapped in her marriage to an uncaring husband; her story documents her affair with a married man. Cammy becomes increasingly despondent as Samantha tries harder to connect with her and decide what to do about her failing marriage.

Depressing ending with an attempt to redeem itself; however, I found it extremely disheartening. The book was well-written, however, and Flock can definitely portray both teenage angst and the perspectives of a failing marriage.
