I have to be honest, I did not finish this one. I started it and got about 1/3 of the way through and just couldn't get onboard. The characters were so unlikable and honestly I was quite bored.

The writing was very good and the author did do a great job with telling the story, but it was just really hard for me to like the characters. The author had an extremely selfish and narcissist mother, who decided to enlist the author to help hide her affair when the author was 14 years old. It's not hard to imagine the psychological damage that would cause. The author lived an extremely privileged life, and while I can't fault her for that privilege, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to get out of this book. The situation is not something most people can identify with or ever face. The privilege isn't something anyone would want to aspire to given the situation.
