This story is one that can help a teenager better understand his or her parent, and a parent to better understand and know about his or her child.

This gives a raw, true look at a life lived. The emotions are true and real.

This is a story of a woman looking back at her life from the age of 50 and of the times in which she lived. It provides a sense of class from the perspective of a person who is poor, marginal and rich. I did not like that her life was defined by her relationships with men and in the end, unlike Hadley's other books, it does not rise above domestic fiction.
