really liked it

Read in September, 2009

A post-9/11 book. I think lots of people expect it to address 9/11, but O'Neill only does so in limited ways and as a means of explaining the characters' actions or frustrations.

So many Americans were affected by 9/11. But life kept happening -- people lost jobs, had babies, got married and divorced. The busyness of life catches up and moves you to the next day and next change in life
