This book is appropriately named because it tells a story of things that happen to a family that are ugly and wonderful. The book is disturbing, intriguing, and catches your heart. Anyone who knows someone who has dealt with addiction can see how this story can spark some truth in people's lives. Wonderfully written and leaves a mark on your soul!!

You won’t be able to put it down even though at times you’ll want to. It’s heavy, but it was a great club discussion. It will make you think, make you feel, and make you squirm a little. Make sure to read the author’s notes in the back when you’re done.

There were parts of this book that really made me want to love it. The style it was written in switching between different perspectives was interesting and Wavys character was also intriguing. I could not get past her age and her relationship with Kellen though. It was not okay. I have lots of thoughts about it.
