A girl recounts time spent with her alcoholic father and how those experiences with her father shaped her own experiences with various boys in her life, experiences both sexual and nonsexual in nature. In a strong and irresistible voice, this story is alive from the beginning, full of vivid detail and wit and dialogue that is flawless. I could not get enough of it. The idea that shaped the story was perfect. You take what life gives you and you make it work. Sometimes it is painful, sometimes is is pleasurable, but it is always memorable.
I absolutely LOVED this story. I will not soon forget it!
