Love Dawn French but couldn't love this book.

The daugher seemed to be written as if she was 12, and not 17, in most parts. It was very off-putting. Also, the bit where the mum undresses the daughter and gives her a bath as if she were a small child - just because hse has a mild one day stomach bug - seemed very unrealistic.

I know we are all different but many of us would have been far too old for that even at 11 or 12, surely. But in the book this happens as if it were the most unremarkable thing in the world. The mother and daughter were barely on speaking terms too. It was a surprising thing to throw in...I wonder why it was?
