How do I review this book? Did it keep me interested and turning the pages? Did it make me think? Yes, on both counts. Did I enjoy reading it? I have to say, guiltily, yes. I say "guiltily" because it is not a clean read. There are dozens of cases of very harsh profanity, though it seems to really come out towards the end. Until I got to the last 100 pages I thought, "Yeah, there's a lot of profanity but it hasn't been too bad." Well, that changed. As for the sex content, I thought it could have been much worse. I gave it a 4 rating just to be on the safe side. I thought it might classify as a 3 because it wasn't overly graphic but it was outside of marriage, so I gave it the 4 rating, as seen above. I couldn't recommend this book to anyone I know but I did find it very interesting. The characters are fleshed out well, they are likable, and they touched me. I thought it was pretty well written most of the time. It made me think about how I treat each of my kids and hope that I can show each of them that I truly love them for who they are.
