Too much

Typically I don't like abridged books, but I think I might have preferred this title in its abridged format. This book needs some editting, there is so much repetition. The reader is hit on the head again and again with how much the main character sacrificed for so many years, and how much she needs to get past to a new life. Then it is her whole generation who has so much to get past. And the perscription for every woman is a sex toy. It was annoying too to have the character referred to, and refer to herself, by her full name, Connie Franklin Nixon, constantly. This was one of those books you feel obligated to finish if you paid for it, but would have returned to the library half way into it.

I did not find this book to be at all in the spirit of YA YA Sisterhood. There were few likeable characters, the story flowed along over the years without building the relationships. The narrator's voice was often whiny and annoying. I wouldn't recommend.
