I’m waiting for my copy from the library, so I expect to take part as well.
Finished reading it. Liked the style but as for the content I didn't feel moved by it.
finished this a month or so ago and really enjoyed it... loved the way that Puig built the story gradually from a really wide range of viewpoints using different styles of writing. The story is one where everyone comes of age... sometimes brutally. It's got a couple of twists and is a great illustration of what happens when we hold back and don't pursue our dreams when we can. Unfortunately, three foster boys are preventing me from writing much more than this but I will get round to a full review eventually.
This book is wild! So many wonderful voices. I especially liked Nene’s letters at the beginning, the way she writes and thinks, such a great mixture of naive and manipulative.
A bit late to the party. I thought the book was well done, and there were some interesting characters. I especially enjoyed Nene and I really liked the way she and her husband decided to make the best of it at the end.
