I finished the book two months behind but I'm so happy I stuck with it. At time I really struggled with the writing and came to parts were I was either confused by what was being said or felt like I had missed a part and was lost. I just reread that section until it became clear and then kept moving forward with what I could grasp. Most of the book was easy to read and moved along once all the main characters were established.

My initial cheering for Becky faded quickly as I realized she was the queen of master manipulating. I agree with the posts that suggested at some point Becky worked as a prostitute to support herself. Even though it turned out that she was not the best person, the book would have been very dull without her antics. Emmy was a sweet and good character but she would have made for a very dull subject if she was the only lead.
