** spoiler alert ** This one revealed some explanations to the actions of Vivi, one of the Ya-Yas and known to all (as publicly announced by her daughter Sidda) as a "tap-dancing child-abuser". Sidda tries her best to understand her mother by reading through a scrapbook of Ya-Ya memories. As said in the book description, it is a story about love and forgiveness.
