durable goods is about a girl who is growing up beside her sister and father. Her mom died some time ago and her father works for the military; he is very strict. This girl can't do anything she wants because her father is always after them and looking what their doing. They can barely talk to him because if they say something wrong he beats them up or talks to them really bad. She wants a boyfriend and is in love with her sister's boyfriend. Her sister is always sneaking out but never gets caught. This girl tries to act like a big woman and her passion are cosmetics. One day her sister decides to run away because their dad said they were moving. Her sister takes her to mexico but in the road, the main character calls her friend to tell her where she was and they come to get her but her sister still leaves with her boyfriend. Their dad never talks about their mom but he has a very clear memory but one day he seats down with the main character and tells her about her mom.

I liked the book but i think there was no outcome of the story. It was fun to read because i was always expecting something to happen, so i didn't put the book down. I learned how these girls grow up with one strict parent
