** spoiler alert ** I read this book very quickly. It was one of those books that I kept thinking about reading even while I was busy doing other things. Some of the other reviews are interesting because I think the reviews themselves reveal quite a lot about the people writing them. People have such differing tolerances for behavior.

While Clarissa's behavior was incomprehensible to me at times and while we are inside her head her motives are kept separate from the reader. I'm not sure if this is purposeful or not. I did feel like some parts of the book are rushed, but the ending didn't bother me so much. While there are obvious parallels between Clarissa's actions and her mother's, you have to remember that Clarissa didn't abandon her child. I think I have to mull this one over for a little while longer. Definitely worth reading.
