    It sounded very promising on the back, about an adopted girl who sets out to find her parents, a hippie mom and a Eurasian dad There were some interesting descriptions about her trip from the Eastern US to California, driving across time zones a day at a time, and passing small towns just like her hometown that she wonders why people chose to live in However, I didn t like the book, didn t like the relationships the character kept forming, and found the author interview at the backintere It sounded very promising on the back, about an adopted girl who sets out ...

    I loved this description of salsa as a courtship dance Retreat and pursuit Promise and withhold All longing and heartache Ecstasy without messy consummation Other than that this was a real disappointment It was too too much in terms of both the writing style and the creepy direction the story took Cut out two thirds of this novel, including ALL of the murders, and it would have made an interesting short story There is something about an adopted girl looking for her birth parents that ma I loved this description of salsa as a courtship dance Retreat and pursuit Promise and withhold All longing and heartache Ecstasy without messy consummation Other than that this was a real disappointment It was too too much in terms of both the writing style and the creepy direction the story took Cut out two thirds of this novel, including ALL of the murders, and it would have made an interesting short story There is something about an adopted girl looking for her birth parents...

    I found this novel mysteriously sitting on the shelf in my room, so I decided it was worth a read Although I didn t find it to be anything super special, it was a wonderfully told story I m usually not one who likes coming of age stories, but this one was a bit different as it involved somemature topics such as murder and resentment One thing I really appreciated about the story was how well it managed to include the history of each character and how creatively it incorporated India int I found this novel mysteriously sitting on the shelf in my room, so I decided...

    This is a strange one Overall, it was decent, and I mostly enjoyed it, but there were times when it got a bit too rambly and other times when it was just a bit too out there for my taste okay, that s an understatement Loco...

    This is probably one of the dumbest fucking books I have ever read The back of the book says this was about a girl who leaves home to go find her birth parents.but that s not what the book was about at all.Sure she leaves home, but then she only has her car, so she ends up homeless and living out of soup kitchens for a while, then she pretty much turns into a whore in the middle of the book The book is already half way done at this point, and she hasn t set out to do what the main plot of t This is probably one of the dumbest fucking books...
