The Lemonade Year

Thank you to NetGalley.com for the opportunity to read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
I wish I could have finished this book. I loved the cover so much but these characters were all so bitter, so angry at themselves and each other, so unhappy – I just couldn’t.
Nina – get over it. You’re the middle child – you’re supposed to be ignored. Sorry you’re not you’re not “damaged” enough like your brother and sister to warrant some attention from your mother. Stop looking for validation from her and move on. You’re never going to get it. Your husband is a cheater – you did the right thing. Your daughter is a teenager – of course she hates you. Its what they do and if they don’t then you’re not doing a good job of parenting. Maybe if you actually did your job at some point in the book you may get better shoot options other than photographing lemonade. Bang Oliver – he makes you smile because nothing else in this book does.
Overall Grade: C-
