To sum up my thoughts on this book, it's like a grown-up version of My Sister's Keeper. Love that book? This book should be your next read. Hated that book? Avoid (or not, I'm not the boss of you :P).
The mother was a terrible mother and a card-carrying bitch. Like every time she showed up I wanted to throw the book across the room, so I just skimmed.
She blamed her daughter on the fact that her speschul snowflake daughter had a heart attack.
Also acted like a primadonna in the ER, calling competent doctors incompetent.
The other characters were just idiotic. I can deal with that though.
I think the idea behind this book had potential, but this execution felt flawed and left me feeling angry and irritated with the wrong kind of feelz.
