I found that I was really able to relate to the main character, Victoria, because she was young and trying to find herself while struggling with life issues and weight. I didn’t have the family life that she did but with the author’s help I was easy to imagine myself in her “unloved” shoes.
The book is very well written and has good flow but had some added characters that I felt were unneeded. For instance, Victoria deals with a student that gets pregnant at the school where she is working and this whole relationship to me is just stuffing. It was put it to add to Victoria’s good characteristics but it’s unnecessary.
