I received a copy of this book through the Goodreads First Reads program.

I thought the concept of this book was really interesting. However, I thought it was going to be more of a "What happened to April?" question, rather than "Why did April's mother do it?" question, which is what it turned out to be. It also followed more of the narrator's life, Elizabeth, than I was expecting. Although I could sympathize with Elizabeth's anguish over the way her life was panning out, I had a hard time liking her more than just marginally. Then again, I'm not a mother, and it might have been easier to do so if parenting was something I had first hand experience with.

I didn't think the story always flowed well, but it did so enough to be able to follow one event logically to the next. I didn't love it, but it was enough to keep me engaged and enjoying the story enough to not be bored.
