I have read the two other books written by Jeanette Walls and was looking forward to this work of fiction. I could not have been more disappointed. The story and character development was lacking. The story mirrors many others about small towns and the stereotypes of its residents ("lint heads", old southern money, racial unrest...). Her other work was interesting perhaps because it was true and therefore was captivating.
In her next book, I hope she spends more time developing the characters and a more engaging story line. Good luck!

I doubt it. The story just did not draw the listener in. I was disappointed.
