The protagonist, Amy Lincoln, comes from poor circumstances...mother abandoned her before her first birthday, father was in and out of jail, raised by her paternal grandmother who was less than an ideal role model. At age fourteen, she gets herself a scholarship to a boarding school, then eventually goes to Harvard and Columbia and now works as a Journalist for a prestigious magazine. Although she has "made" something of herself, she finds she is having a hard time connecting with people, always distancing herself when they get too close. She goes on a search for her mother in hopes for some answers.

This book is very contemporary, often humorous. Took me a little bit to get into it, but once I got used to the style, it was entertaining. I'd say it is one level above a beach read.
