    It is 1970. "Bean" Holladay is 12 and her sister, Liz, is 15 when their artistic mother, Charlotte, a woman who flees every place she’s ever lived at the first sign of trouble," takes off to find herself." She leaves her girls enough money for food to last a month or two. But when Bean gets home from school one day and sees a police car outside the house, she and Liz board a bus from California to Virginia, where their widowed Uncle Tinsley lives in the decaying antebellum mansion that’s been in the family for generations.

    Would you try another book from Jeannette Walls and/or Jeannette Walls?

    I've heard great things about her and I have one of her other books that I've not read yet so I thought this would be a good read...WRONG.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes...she sounds like a young girl which I realize this is written from the perspective of a young girl but it lacks depth and the way in which it's read doesn't help it at all.


    Any additional comments?

    I made it through 5 chapters and had to quit. I should have read the other reviews before I checked this out. Everyone else's perception was the same as mine. The writer lacks depth in developing the characters and the story line. It's really a book for a teenager with a simple story line. Very disappointing.
