Seriously not my cup of tea. Cutsey language, sentimentality run amok, and a deep sense of nostalgia for times that, well, I couldn't possibly feel nostalgic for. I'm not sure how an abusive mother is supposed to be funny or colorful, nor how transferring your disfunction onto you children is to be held up like a badge of honor. Maybe I needed to have crazy parents to understand it.

Msjwilliams You're right. People who didn't have dysfunctional families will have a hard time understanding or identifying with this. I just wish my own mom had once had Ya-Yas in her corner, because it might have made her happier and her children's lives more stable....

Shannon I have crazy parents and didn't get it, either.
