In the beginning this book is at times hard to follow. As one becomes accustomed to the writer's unique style, and gets to know the characters better, it does get easier to read. I do think the author has a unique perspective on these characters, in particular the friendship between the two main characters in the book. I'm not sure if it was her intention, but the progression of the story really doesn't seem to be leading anywhere. Maybe that's more like real life, especially the forgetfulness of the mothers in the story. Whole plot lines are dropped for years due to memory lapses! I hope I'm not that bad! Sorry, kids:)
