really liked it

An uncomfortable read of the devastation and long term effects of Fabricated or Induced Illness (FoII) which used to be called Munchausen - by - proxy. This novel offers a multiple character viewpoint which, for the vast majority of the novel, puts the reader in the shoes of the other residents in town who also have to make a judgement call about what is actually going on with Rose Gold and her mother Patty's current relationship. I was very disappointed with the ending because the title led me to expect otherwise, but in all fairness to the author I would agree that this ending is the most realistic one based on the experience of Rose Gold whilst growing up and during her mother's incarceration.
I was given an ARC by the publisher on Netgalley in exchange for a fair review.
