oh to be a young flighty young thing with a momma popping pills and STILL be able to get in an Ivy league College that seems to be the norm with this class of folk boo-hoo boo-hoo.
I agree with the other comments here. It's a beautifully written book but it was difficult for me to empathize with the main character's life of privilege and unsympathetic hatred of her mother. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the read!
Good sensational read. Narrator voice had a tendency to read as being a bit shallow at times.
In a sentence, this book is shallow and vapid and the prose is insipid and full of glib cliches (at one point, she compares working as a stage hand changing sets to clocking in on a slave ship and rowing for twelve hours. Really?). If you're a fan of Gossip Girl (books or show), then this is the adult version and just for you (some of the scenes read as if she's just waiting for the movie deal to come in). I do not discount or discredit the author's experiences; however, as a writer, the author completely fails to create any sort of emotional connection to the reader and even to the events she describes in the book. It'll be perfect for the beach reads set.
Forget what you know about dysfunctional family stories: this one is Mommy Dearest meets Valley of the Dolls meets Dark Shadows meets Gossip Girl
