This book was decent, but not great, or even good. It provided an interesting look at an immigrant struggling to fit in, as well as a look at LA, but overall, it didn't feel like it had much meat. The narrator is unsympathetic, and speaks frequently of unpleasant smells and tastes, largely related to her environment and the men in her life. When the end comes, little is resolved, and her actions seem unjust.
Not a bad book, but nothing I found special.
