I liked this book and found it fascinating in a voyeuristic kind of way. It has a running with scissors quality in that through most of the book I was in disbelief that people could possibly live this way. Not exactly the poverty etc. but more the attitudes of the family and specifically of the parents. However, that said, overall it was a good read and well written, it kept me up at night to want to read one more chapter to see what happened next which means it's a good book and did it's job of entertaining the reader.
