Charlotte Mecklenburg Library (charlotte_mecklenburg_library) | 13 comments One reason that Eleanor has not been more present in her daily life is the anxiety she feels about writing her book and the dark cloud of avoidance that hangs over it. She is also very self-deprecating when she talks about herself. Are there times when her anxiety, avoidance or sarcasm make her an unreliable narrator? Are there times when you’ve felt the same way about your own life?
Can't wait to hear from you!

Cordelia Anderson | 8 comments She’s definitely unreliable at times! When she talks about the perfect moms at the school, she’s not seeing them as humans with their own lives and fears and anxieties. Yes, they are partly to blame for trying to appear perfect, but a little kindness or candor from her would probably make them open up and be more real with her.
