In a way this book was an emotional rollercoaster. The comical times help break up the seriousness that this book may have on people who lives hit close to home with the story line *raise hand* Life isn't always unicorns and rainbows. There are thunderclouds, tidal waves and those HUGE fucking pot holes in the road of life that sometimes we can't avoid. We hit them, pound our fists on the steering wheel, swear and wallow. But then we eventually have to put on the spare and continue driving. Morgan's non friction reminds you of that.
One thing I really enjoyed was the daughters perspective and dialogue in this book. I have read many books that included children but always played them as being oblivious to the situation and dumbed down their conversations. Children are more perceptive than that. The thoughts Evelyn had were amazing at times.
And then there's Morgan *sigh*. How could you not want to love him, fix him, slap him and tell him to wake up. I told you, ROLLERCOASTER! But one that you must ride...I mean read!
