This was not my favorite one of Joshilyn Jackson's books. I enjoyed reading it, but it didn't captivate me like the others. Many of the characters just annoyed me (Genny & Bernice, for example) and I felt like the storyline didn't really go anywhere--it just dragged. The only scene that captivated me was the fire scene, but that's not until the last chapter or two of the book. Don't get me wrong, I definitely didn't dislike it, it just wasn't one of my favorites. I did like Nonny and how she seemed to grow and find herself throughout the book. She struggles with what a lot of us struggle with--how to be a good daughter while becoming an adult and an individual and how to balance your needs with the needs of your family, but that was, I felt, an undercurrent of the book, not the focus. Overall, I wouldn't tell someone not to read it, but I don't know that I'd recommend it.
