Comments Since You Ask

  • Dia

    A book about a girl who was molested as a girl and finds out just how much this has affected her later. She has a kind of breakdown and goes into a hospital where she talks a lot with her doctor about what happened and why. Beautiful writing and really sad intense story, but really helpful because she really tries to understand how she can get over her past and be happier. Intense.


  • Liz

    I really shouldn't read these books about crazy girls, it isn't healthy for me. But this was very good. The juxtaposition of times was skillfully done, and her style reminds me of Hemingway, in that the writing seems to simply report what happened and leave the subtext to you. Of course this means once I finished it I was cumulatively more emotionally disturbed than I realized.


  • ABC Group

    A solid read that addresses the abuse of young lady and the impacts it has on her life. Despite being privileged and wealthy, Betsy doesn't ooze entitlement, so much as tragedy and brokenness. Some folks are fucked from an early start and she's one of them. I must admit that this felt long, despite being only 213 pages. I understand the patterned behavior. And, I get how many of the folks in this book are simply void of any decencyd that our lead character is drawn to these people. It's just kin [...]


  • Mike Lindgren

    Intermittently affecting troubled-youth tale reads like contemporary Plath / Salinger update complete with mental institution, disconnected parents, unsympathetic peers, etc. etc. The author is capable of occasional flashes of lyricism, but mostly relies on the flat, atonal register favored by young novelists who are trying to imply oceans of pain beneath the stoical surface. Should be docked an additional star for hideously amateurish, sleazy, irrelevant cover. The title is from a poem by Anne [...]


  • Maggie Simpson

    LOVE, LOVE LOVE this book. There is not a word missing or a word to spare. The subject matter is dark but real - and it is a wonderful coming of age tale. It is a fantastic read - just could not put it down!!


  • Louise Leonard

    Of course I have to rate this a 5! I wrote it, and worked so hard on it! L


  • Cherylck

    I get that this is supposed to be written by a psychotic troubled junkie, but the erratic nature of the prose was just too gimmicky.


  • Michele

    I was totally obsessed with this book. It spoke to me and the words were like a song. Parts were very emotional and not easy to move through but it was worth it. It changed my life.


  • Jane Krier

    A very dark subject manner but written in a very fluid way. I loved this author's writing style.


  • Evan

    There's something ass backwards about this book. By the time it started getting human, and interesting, in the last 40 pages, I was so cold to it that I didn't care.I was patiently waiting for something resembling human beings as I know them to enter the story; instead encountering people who I wouldn't associate with in real life, much less want to read about.So, as stories about crazy young rich girls enduring incest, drug abuse, intergenerational and nymphomaniacal sex go, this one was pretty [...]


  • Siobhan.

    This book was fucked up in so many ways. But understandable. The bits were Frank were so beyond creepy and unbearable to read. I don't what it's like in psychiatric hospitals in America, but over here, they don't let you just get in a car and go into town with friends while you're staying at the psychiatric hospital. My dad also agrees. Also wish we would've gotten some closure over the Beck situation. Her parents are so fucked up. The fact that they should swept what happened with Betsy and Ray [...]


  • Andrea

    I waited the whole time to hear exactly what happened to her as a child between her brother and her, but even in the few last pages where there were words leading into it, I was thoroughly dissapointed. I just now finished this book on my kindle Jan 2011 and realized I had rated it when I finished it back in Sept 2009. Forgettable? I guess I had.


  • Jess

    This book was beautifully written and had a fascinating plot. The tone held very true to the perspective of the main character. I enjoyed it and I read it quickly. But by the end, I was starting to lose interest a little bit.


  • Jodi Papazian

    Yikes, I don't even remember anything about this book. And doesn't that kind of say it all??
