Ellen Hopkins takes the idea of her popular teen novels--a novel in verse--and applies it to more adult concerns and themes. Like her teen novels, this does deal a lot with love and identity, but it's middle-aged women (and mothers) struggling to come to grips with where their lives are.

Overall, I really liked this. She tried a different method in here, which personally I didn't like much at all, of single-page poems in third-person that came off as some weird preachy morals. They felt pretty out of place from the usual solid first-person narratives.

Very emotional reading, but that's expected of Hopkins. I was disappointed that some parts were glazed over towards the end, but it wouldn't surprise me at all to see a follow-up to this at some point.
