really liked it
Read from January 16 to 17, 2012

** spoiler alert ** Oh my. What a delish book. It had me after reading the first page in the library. So glad I read it.

This memoir is written by four siblings who had quite a time growing up, both in hard times and "partying" it up. Their father mysteriously dies one night, leaving them with pretty much nothing and a whole lot of debt. Their mother was/is an actress who is diagnosed with cancer. And then there's the whole growing up thing, that no one has ever done just right.

This book will take you on incredible highs (seeing how much these four people do care about each other) pretty deseperate lows (Diana, the youngest, had a very rough patch with her "adopted" family) and at times unbelieveable tales of their partying. (Maybe the late 70s/early 80s were like this for everyone who was in that age range? I was just surprised...)

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! :)
