3.5 stars. This is a well written story about a family. The point of view changes throughout the book, allowing the reader to explore similar events through different viewpoints. The characters and family had so much dysfunction going on that I found myself being dragged into their drama with a bad mood to boot.

Then again, that's why it's well written, since Tyler can tweak your emotions this way. I am both glad to have read it and glad that it's over. Not a feel good title, but a solid story.
