About the Book
Funny how when your life is mostly bullshit, you turn off feeling.
Sometimes it's hard to turn it back on again.
Sadly, this book disappointed me. It was interesting and there's a lot of things going on in here that I feel are incredibly important and valid issues. But it just seemed like the author took some pretty awful things and shoved them all together to make the most dramatic thing possible. It was almost an insult to people who actually deal with these types of things.
The worst thing of all is everything about this was cliche as fook. I wasn't even surprised at how anything went. At first I thought this book would bother me because there are some pretty heavy topics like sexual abuse, drug addiction, and child abuse. Except I really didn't feel much while I read it. I didn't connect with the characters at all.
Thing is, I've experienced 2 of those three main topics. So I understand the subject pretty well. And usually just a basic description of such things is strong enough to cause me to feel some pretty heavy emotions. And I was expecting that with this book. But, nope. Nothing.
And the worst thing of all was the end. It was something that is so overdone. Especially in books with twins. I'm not saying it's not a horrible thing or something that doesn't happen in real life. But it's incredibly rare. Except in the literary world.
Despite all of that, it's still got enough of a story that I wanted to know what was going on. So it's getting 3 platypires, but only barely.
