it was amazing

This book was totally not what I expected. I thought it would be the teenager's struggle with sucking his thumb, keeping it secret from his classmates and friends, something like that. The thumbsucking was really a minor part of the story. The family dynamics were the focus.

And what a messed up family it is! The characters were very convincing, and sounded like people that I might know! They sounded like people that might be in my family. I couldn't put this book down. I definitely recommend it!
