I really gave this book a chance. It took me around two months to get through it and I just never "got it". This book seemed like an alternate universe that I just didn't understand. I didn't connect with the main character at all. The main story was about a bald woman from Burma living in Norfolk, Virginia with an autistic husband who works at NASA and is on a shuttle to the moon. They have an autistic son named Bubber and she is pregnant again. Maybe I would have enjoyed this more if it wasn't set in the area I live? I don't know. I'm just not sure what would have made this better for me. I have read the reviews for this book and people seemed to really enjoy it and I'm glad. I mostly purchased this book to support a local author. I would definitely still check out her next book. The writing was great, I'm just hoping maybe her next book will be a little more relatable.
