it was amazing
bookshelves: 2012
Read from March 30 to April 01, 2012

This novel, for me, had a shaky start and I was concerned it might become a super light YA read. But it wasn’t. Inconvenient deals with alcoholism and the silence around it. I also found it interesting to look into a Jewish Russian lifestyle.
Thoughts while reading…
Who around me could be dealing with alcoholism and I don’t know about it. Many people who have issues with alcohol keep it very silent.
How far will you go to be accepted? How far will your kids go to be accepted? How far will your friends go to be accepted? There is a line where a person can try so hard to be accepted by someone that they are no longer the person they were created to be.
A sweet reminder to cherish our differences rather than change and become more like another person, so that they will accept you.
I read this in one sitting, I couldn’t put it down.
