I wasn't sure right on the very beginning why it is a best-seller, nor why so many good writers gave it such high praise.
However, as it rolled along This book is amazing and insightful on so many different levels. I just loved it. There came a point where I couldn't put it down, had to finish!
One person found this helpful. I accidentally purchased this and wanted another book with the same title. I enjoyed it enough, but can't highly recommend it. Shannon is a teenager growing up in the small town of Falling Rock, Kentucky in the early s. Her father has just left her mother to take up with the town's beautician and her older brother Will is about to go away to college. Shannon is determined that she is not going to be stuck in the dead-end town after high school, working in the underwear factory like her mother.
This book was definitely not a "feel-good" book - the mood was melancholy throughout and the characters, especially Shannon, faced some difficult situations and decisions. It was ultimately about Shannon's struggle to be her own person and break free of the hold her family and the town had over her. Even though it was kind of depressing, it had a good story that took some surprising turns.
On the surface, this seems to be just another story about a dysfunctional family.
It begins with Virgina Lemmons discovering beyond a doubt that the gossip is true about her husband Roger and the town's flamboyant new beautician. As the author deftly develops her characters, each member of the Lemmons family emerges as not so much dysfunctional as simply human, even that cad Roger. Virginia works hard for her family, especially after Roger leaves her and their two children, Will and Shannon, but she has her own secrets.
She also has a very controlling nature that fosters conflict, especially with her year-old daughter Shannon.
Virginia controls Shannon too tightly in an attempt to keep her daughter from making the same mistakes that keep Virginia anchored to her rural Kentucky town and a factory job. Shannon is smart, takes advanced classes and is set to graduate from high school before she's She dreams of going to college and having a career and better life than her mother has, but her rebellion against Virginia's strictness threatens that dream. At 17, Will is handsome, popular and hopes to go to college on an athletic scholarship.
He has secrets too, but it's not even on Virgina's radar that Will may make mistakes. All of the Lemmons are basically good people who make mistakes -- and have to suffer the consequences. They also suffer more than their fair share of injustices, and pay dearly for the actions of others. Their failure to communicate, and their penchant for keeping secrets, only adds to their problems. I love character-driven fiction and this novel has a full cast of believable characters that made me care what happened to them.
This is the author's debut and I feel very fortunate that I discovered it as a Kindle freebie in July. I look forward to reading more. I liked the story. It was interesting and real, compared to the average everyday novel. I would recommend this book to everyone. This was a nice, easy read.
