A mother-daughter story about two women who are neither to each other. I'm a little perplexed that I liked a book about a pathological liar and a borderline sociopath who is all steel and no magnolia. But Joshilyn Jackson managed to weave this tale and keep me reading. Her characters are quirky, flawed, and unbelievably believable. There's always something beyond the boundaries of "normal" and something else that is so piercingly real. I was glad it was a rainy day so I had the excuse to finish the book in one day.
