This book was seriously the hottest mess ever and I enjoyed every single second of it.
Do you ever read a book and sit back and think Holy Shit did i grow up with this author. Kidding Kidding not kidding?

This book is more Women's Fiction than a romance, family drama, drama drama llamas....

But the author can weave a story like strings on a violin....

There were some lines in this book that struck me right in the heart. I had my son young (no regrets as he is the best human to human) and it was just him and I because the sperm donor just didnt have the mental capacity to father. I understand making decisions without you being the 1st person you think of. I understand how doing what you think is the best in a situation causes a domino effect, how at a young age you can look at someone and think it is LOVE LOVE LOVE and you're caught in this whirlwind of fast and furious and booze and smoking a lil weed, getting down and dirty in a stolen VW Jetta. How your decisions can affect this lil human being and how having an absentee father shapes your whole entire existence.

Some say you are not your past, but your past is what shapes you, makes you you, makes you tick and tock. How for 21 years we have shaped each other. How he is me and I am him and how many I hate you and I love you's have been thrown my way and how i would not change that for the world.
And now my human has a lil human of his own and the affects of not having his biological father in his life makes him a better father, someone who wants to do better, who at 20 took his responsibility like a man and ran with it. And all I can think is " I DID THAT " ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME

So I understand Olivia more than I think most who read this book will.
She was crazy and self centered and her walls were so high that it was frightening.
Also I love someone very much who is very very much like Olivia who went through the exact same thing.
Somehow someway I hope her story ends up how this one did....
