Recommended for: cry as* white people.
Read in August, 2006

This is a book that suffers from what I like to call “Cry Ass White People” syndrome. We follow the main character, Hannah, as she grows from a dysfunctional young girl to a dysfunctional young adult. Hannah had "been raised... not to be accommodated but to accommodate," Welcome self-esteem problems! Hannah seeks professional help while attending college (see cry-ass white people) and feels better about herself. Hannah finds thrills by being a *third wheel* tagging along with her fun-loving cousin, Fig. Kinda boring, but good solid writing. Enough that I read another book by this author this year. Book #31 of my 2006 Book List, finished reading it on 6-20-06.
